Unaffiliated viewers of high-profile neutral-site college football games, rejoice: There will be no choosing between the God's House O'Chicken Kickoff and the Jerrydome Football Space Camp Classic this year. Per a Tuesday ESPN announcement, the Atlanta game, Alabama vs. Virginia Tech in the Georgia Dome, will kick at 5:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, August 31, while the Arlington clash, TCU vs. LSU at Cowboys Stadium, will get underway at 9 p.m. With the potential pointsplosion of Georgia at Clemson lurking in between at 8:00 p.m., it's shaping up to be a very fine first Saturday indeed. Just under six months to go! [weeps uncontrollably]
