Who loves Thursday night games? We all do. Just like last year, the season opener has been bumped back a couple of days:
Texas A&M has been invited to move our first @AggieFootball game of the 2019 season to Thursday, Aug. 29. A note from #PresYoung and more info: https://t.co/gRfbpnGxSI pic.twitter.com/QSuX6INlA4— Texas A&M University (@TAMU) March 20, 2019
Hope y’all don’t mind burning a couple extra days of vacation time if you’ve made plans to attend. Look at the bright side: now your Saturday is free to grow angry at College GameDay’s coverage of Urban Meyer, eat and drink far too much, and surreptitiously watch Louisiana Tech play Texas on an unsanctioned stream of the LHN. And remember: this was all done by the administration for the purity of the sport, not to maximize brand footprint or optimize revenue accruals or anything business decision-y like that.
