Hey, it’s Thursday! And somehow, it’s the first night this week with actual -- or even phantasmal -- football content. Where have you gone, oh Sun Belt?
Oh, wait, they’re right here, kicking off the evening’s action with a 6:30 tilt in Jonesboro between Arkansas State and Louisiana-Lafayette. That game, with the Red Wolves favored by 12½, will air on ESPNU.
At 7:00, the 25th-ranked Memphis Tigers travel to the land of mosquitos and refinery stink to take on the Houston Cougars. Houston is actually favored by a field goal in this one, which you can imbibe via ESPN proper.
Over on CBS at 7:25, the Kansas City Chiefs get a still-daylight prime-time kickoff in the filthy confines of the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum as they face their most-hated enemies, the Oakland Raiders. This is generally a game which brings all K-State fans together, as no matter now much Broncos and Chiefs fans hate one another, there’s one thing on which they can generally find common ground: Oakland is far worse.
Hang out, express your joy or dismay at whatever crosses your field of vision, and we’ll see you tomorrow!
