Post Boise St. – Georgia opener set for 8 p.m. on ESPN

Wednesday April 13, 2011

When you schedule an opponent like Boise State for a major neutral site game, you hope and almost assume that significant national exposure comes with the deal. That might not be the case for Georgia’s 2011 opener.

Marc Weiszer is reporting that the September 3rd game against Boise State at the Georgia Dome will start at 8:00 p.m. and will be televised by ESPN. Ordinarily that would be a great primetime slot. But Weiszer also mentions that the Georgia game will be going up against the LSU-Oregon game on ABC at the same time. It’s likely that much of the national attention that’s been on the Atlanta game over the past few years, including Gameday, will instead be on that LSU-Oregon game in Dallas.

Last season’s LSU-UNC game at the Dome was the ABC game, and its main competition in that time slot was a much lower-profile TCU-Oregon State game.
