Tonight, August 30, 2007, Anno Domini, at a little after 8 PM EST, LSU and Mississippi State will kickoff the 2007 college football schedule. Matt Flynn will take over for JaMarcus Russell at QB for the Tigers. Flynn has one career start, but it was a good one: 2 TDs in a 40-3 rout of Miami in the 2005 Peach Bowl.
Year after year football fans anticipate the opening weekend of the NFL like a kid waiting for Christmas, but the opening game of the college football season tends to sneak up on you. Well, two teams will line up tonight to play a game that counts not a moment too soon.
