Football is here! Real, live actual football tonight!

I know we're still two days away from THE GAME, but it still feels good to know the season has officially dawned. Matt Hinton summed it up perfectly by using no words at all. 

Boise State sets a new record for season ticket sales

This is great news for the team and will hopefully help accelerate the stadium expansion project. However, I've heard some rumblings about how Boise State has raised the prices in the past few years. I don't live in the area anymore, so I'm curious, how much are tickets these days? Are they pricing some fans out?

The Aggies are single and ready to mingle. No word yet from the SEC whether or not they are expanding. SMU responds in typical SMU fashion. BYU also would like to comment to say they aren't going to comment. Thanks guys.

Presnap Read has Oklahoma at number 3 in their countdown

That means that Boise State is sliding in one of the top 2 spots and will be previewed either tomorrow or Friday Saturday.
