Well, it will be in just under 24 hours when at 6pm Austin time the games begin! I can hardly wait.
VT is playing ECU in a rematch from last year where the Hokies won an emotional game 17-7. They kick at 11am local time. My friend Kevin and I have a one beverage bet where he gets the 9.5 points. The winner will probably claim a Guinness at our old haunt BD Riley’s in a couple of weeks.
Later on in the day, Texas is playing Florida Atlantic. Texas is a 24 point favorite and it is likely to H-O-T in Austin this Saturday evening. They are retiring Vince Young’s jersey that night as well.
This is my favorite time of year. The close of baseball, the start of college and pro football, and cooler weather. Well, that last part comes in October around here- but I can now see it on the horizon.
