Mark Your Calendar For CU vs CSU

Set your alarm clocks CU fans, ESPN has decided to make this years CU vs CSU game at Invesco Field at Mile High an early start.

Announced today, ESPN 2 will televise the game beginning at 11:00 am MT on Saturday, August 31st.  This marks a change for the network, which has either broadcast the game in the evening or the afternoon.  ABC broadcast the game last season.

Could this be an attempt to avoid any more late night riots in Denver? 

Last season, the Buffs and Rams kicked-off at 1 pm MT and the Buffs went on to rout the Rams 41-14.  Led by a pair of interceptions returned for touchdowns by Donald Strickland and Michael Lewis and a pounding running-game that racked up 315 yards, the Buffs dominated the game from the opening kick-off.
