Minnesota Football game times announced for Buffalo and MTSU

Good news, the season opener will get done well before midnight!

NCAA Football: Oregon State at Minnesota Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

Last we learned when the Gophers will play on the road at Oregon State and at home against Illinois for Homecoming. Thanks to an announcement by BTN a little while ago, we also know the kickoff times for the rest of Minnesota’s non-conference schedule.

  • The home/season opener against the Buffalo Bulls will kick off at 6pm CT on Thurs 8/31at TCF Bank Stadium. The good news is that this means the game won’t get done close to midnight. The bad news is that this will significantly complicate pre-game traffic and tailgating access. Pick your poison I guess.
  • The 3rd game of the season versus Middle Tennessee State on Sat 9/16 will be a 2:30pm kickoff. The Gophers are guaranteed at least 3 weeks without an 11am kickoff!

The remaining 7 games on the schedule (Maryland, @Purdue, Michigan State, @Iowa, @ Michigan, Nebraska, @Northwestern, Wisconsin) will be announced as each of those games draws closer.
