Best Answer

College Football is on Saturday. Having them on two different days keeps them from losing viewers to one another. Many people like to watch both and can't if they are on at the same time. This way people can watch college football on Saturday and professional football on Sunday and the NFL and NCAA get the most possible viewers.
