Here’s some interesting breaking news: according to Southern Miss beat writer Jason Munz, Kentucky’s season opener against the Golden Eagles will move to Thursday, September 1 for television reasons. If true, that means Kentucky will be on ESPN for a Thursday night game for the second season in a row, the first being last year’s game vs. Auburn on October 15.
Playing one of the first football games of the season in front of a nation starving for college football? Yes, please.
UPDATE: Not so fast…
