    I can never make a 4pm game.

    7pm start time for all Satuday games.

    With that said, homecoming games are usually at 4pm anyway. Should work out fine.
    They did not move this game it was TBA to my knowledge. And they started at the best time possible except for 2:00 PM after the time change. College football is meant to be played on Saturday afternoon.

    Growing up a fan of Nebraska (were always on TV) I used to believe the afternoon myth as well.

    Louisiana Saturday Nights is the absolute best time for College Football.

    In my long life college football in Louisiana was almost always a night time event. We're not the N East, or any other part of the country. I'm never having daytime games when we've got beautiful night lights.

    Until we build a dome or global cooling really takes hold, football games in Louisiana should always be played after 6 pm.

    We've usually had kickoff at 4:00 for homecoming and for all home games late season. I was totally expecting this game time announcement for it being a 4:00 kick off.

    This time of year, a good portion of the game that starts at 4:00 IS at night. I personally prefer a 4:00 game for homecoming and 6:00 for all others.

    I prefer 6:00 or even 7:00 for all. Games at 7:00 just mean I get home very late, I mean very early Sunday morning.

    My guess is that ESPN thinks if they space out games during the day instead of starting every single game at 6pm more people are likely to tune into games throughout the day. For example, a UL fan might want to watch other Sun Belt games during the day and catch the UL game at 6, but he obviously won't do that if all the Sun Belt games took place at 6 too.

    Either way, ESPN doesn't pay our asses nearly enough money to screw with our game times like that.

    Homecoming should be the culmination of the day, not the launch pad to do something afterwards.

    My day ends after the 4 o'clock game. Agree.

    Espn 3 has very few night games. My guess is they don't want to pull from their prime time audience on the mothership and the deuce.

    I was told, by an inside source, the game is being played at 4 because the team has a very early flight to the Caymans Saturday morning

    I would assume this to be true.
