    Great, a NOON game Sept 15th. It should only be about 93 FRIGGIN DEGREES!!!!! ANNNNND, the game will only last 41/2 hours, awesome. I hate how the almighty dollar drives these game times. I’ll get rid of my tickets for this game.

      You expected SEC network or espn to cover Murray st vs Kentucky during prime time? Lol

      Noon games in September (or really, anytime) suck, there’s no denying that.

      Yes, noon games do suck. But the matchup of Murray st warrants a noon game

    The older you get, the more you’ll appreciate some noon kickoffs….especially late in the season

      And like Jaws this is the game I will miss this year. I always miss one game, driving 3.5 hours 1 way I usually skip the noon games. Hope this is the only one this year, and there are no Bengals home games after a UK home game this year. Really hate that as I have season tix for Bengals as well and could hit 2 games in one weekend, had 4 such weekends the last 2 seasons and this year NONE….AAAAARRRRRGGGGG
