TODAY'S QUESTION: Do you like late starts for Missouri football home games?
Friday, October 1, 2010 | 2:26 p.m. CDT
It was announced this week that Missouri's Big 12 Conference opening game against Colorado, Oct. 9, at Memorial Stadium, will be a night game — 6 p.m. to be exact.
This will be the third night game of the young season for the Missouri football team. Non-conference games against McNeese State and San Diego State both had 6 p.m. starting times to allow the MU athletics department to sell those games as pay-per-view. Last weekend's game against Miami (Ohio) began in the afternoon and was not on television.
A Saturday night game isn't all that peculiar, and certainly falls behind in novelty with last season's Thursday night loss to Nebraska. At the same time, the athletics department has shown a recent propensity to schedule more night games in Missouri's recent successful football run.
Do you prefer home football games starting at night or in the afternoon?
