Even with the 2020 college football offseason already affected by some rather unprecedented spring delays and cancellations, most programs don't have to wait until August to see the scheduling challenges that await them later this year.

In fact, most FBS Power 5 college football programs already have their entire 2020-21 season schedules finalized, including the Alabama Crimson Tide. And with a finalized schedule is in hand, the spreads and betting odds to win each game aren't long to follow.
