This is it. Tonight is the night! The Golden Gophers kick off their season with a much-anticipated matchup against the Horned Frogs under the lights of TCF Bank Stadium. Am I excited? I'll defer to Chandler Bing:
I think we've all had enough of the preseason chatter. Time to play some football! I can't remember the last time I was this excited for football season to start. We've got Jerry Kill and crew to thank for that, I believe.
But let's get to this game everyone has been talking about.
What time is the game?
8 PM CST. If you're watching from home, I'd suggest a nap after work to relieve anxiety and avoid dozing off late in the game. If you're tailgating, try to pace yourself. With the late start, you don't want to be wasted by kickoff.
How can I watch the game?
TV: ESPN (National Broadcast)
I don't own a television. What about radio?
Radio: Kool 108 (107.9 in the Twin Cities) and the Gopher Radio Network (Radio Affiliates).
Streaming Audio: Locate Kool 108 on IHeartRadio.com (or the IHeartRadio app for your mobile device)
Satellite Radio: SiriusXM 84; Sirius 84; XM 84
I'm feeling confident(ish). How does Vegas feel?
Spread: TCU by 16 to 17, depending on the site.
Over/Under: 57.5 to 58, depending on the site.
What is the appropriate response if the Gophers pull the upset?
