Now we know why Moroni has the horn! ---
The team with the longest winning streak in the nation takes to the field tonight, as the Utes open the season against in-state rival Utah State Aggies @ 7pm, Rice-Eccles Stadium. Or, as my boy Andy put it… “It hardly seems fair that Utah State has to open the season on the road against the reigning national champion.” Oh well.
All that really means is that college football is back, and for the millions of fans like me, who bitch about the joke that is college football’s “computer championship” there is still a full season of Thursday night fall games and Saturday mornings of football wonderment.
If you won’t be among the rabid at Rice-Eccles, you can catch the game on the Mountain. ESPN will also carry South Carolina vs N.C. State @ 5pm, and Oregon @ Boise St. @ 8:15.
Thanks to my girl Yo for the Ute flag pic.
