College Football Opening Night Open Thread

New, 710 comments

After yet another long and grueling offseason, college football finally makes its glorious return tonight. To hell with the booster scandals, the pay-for-play innuendo, the message board rumors, the wannabe "reporters"; real football is officially back.

The season officially kicks off tonight at 6:00 Central with Murray State at Louisville. UNLV v. Wisconsin is slotted as the primetime match-up on ESPN at 7:00. Mississippi State travels north to take on Memphis on Fox Sports South at 7:00, and that will likely get most of the attention from 'Bama followers for obvious reasons. Finally, Kentucky will take on Western Kentucky in Nashville (no, that's not a typo) at 8:15 on ESPNU in the late game.

Chime in here with all of your thoughts and comments on tonight's action.
