After much waiting and anticipation, there is finally a game time and network for the BYU-Oklahoma game.

The September 5th game, which is part of the kickoff week for college football, will be televised on ESPN at 6 pm central time. That’s 5 pm mountain for those of you in Utah.

I tried to look at the OU website to see if they said anything about the game, but there was more there about the Cowboys' new stadium than the game itself.

Tickets have been released for season ticket holders, but the rest of us will have to wait for a little while to get our chance. They are going for $50-$80, as of right now, but I expect they will get a lot higher as the game draws closer.

Most people will be better off paying the $30-$40 for parking and just watching the game on the big screen. It is ridiculous how much it all costs, but that is Jerry Jones for you.

Either way, I am really looking forward to this game. In the past, when we have played great teams, we have had lots of questions on our team, but this time, the nucleus is still there. The biggest question is how good our O-line will be, but I am not really worried about it. We always have at least an average O-line.

I’m getting really excited, and seeing as how there are no major sporting events between now and the start of the season, we should start seeing more and more about college football.

Sorry, I forgot the NBA Finals will start in almost a week. They just last so freaking long that they feel like the regular season never ends. Plus, all these long breaks between rounds make me lose interest.

Forgive my sidetrack. BYU is going to have a good season and may very well have a great season, if they get a few good calls and some favorable bounces.
