It's game week and Oregon fans are ready for LSU

Posted by Bryan Fischer

After an offseason filled with turmoil, transfers and Texas A&M to the SEC, the start of the college football season is officially here. It's game week across the country and teams are busy installing new plays, preparing against the scout team and getting their helmets ready for action.

The big opener that everybody is looking forward to is #3 Oregon versus #4 LSU at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas. The folks at DucksEmpire.com are so excited about seeing their team back in action after coming up short in the national title game that they put together a fantastic highlight video to get everybody pumped up: 

Even if you're not an Oregon fan, how can you watch that and not get pumped up for the return of college football? Here's the week one schedule to help plan out your weekend filled with, thankfully, football.

Are you ready? Certainly looks like the Ducks are.

BYU and TCU to meet at Cowboys Stadium

Posted by Tom Fornelli

Back in August when word leaked out that BYU was going to be leaving the Mountain West and going independent, TCU head coach Gary Patterson said that he would not consider playing the Cougars and that BYU should "be careful what you wish for." Now, six months later, TCU has announced that it is leaving the Mountain West as well, and has been given a bit of the pariah treatment. The Mountain West moved the Horned Frogs game against Boise State from Fort Worth to Boise. Shortly before that decision, Texas Tech backed out of a game against TCU for the second year in a row, leaving the Horned Frogs with an empty spot on the schedule.

Well guess who filled that spot? As was reported last month, TCU and BYU will now be playing a game in Cowboys Stadium.
Brigham Young and TCU will meet Oct. 28 at Cowboys Stadium in a game set to be nationally televised by ESPN2.
The game helps fill out TCU's schedule, which has yet to be formally announced. It replaces a scheduled BYU game at Louisiana Tech on Nov. 5.
Kickoff for the BYU-TCU game is set for 8 p.m. ET.
It will be the second time playing at Cowboys Stadium for both teams. BYU played the first college football game in Jerry Jones' salute to football decadence back in 2009, beating Oklahoma, and TCU opened it's 2010 season with a victory over Oregon State there.

BYU, TCU in talks to play at Cowboys Stadium

Posted by Tom Fornelli

As we are all well aware of now, TCU is scrambling to put together a schedule for 2011 after having Texas Tech drop a game between the two, and it looks like TCU will be staying in Texas to replace that game. A number of reports today say that TCU is currently engaged in talks with former Mountain West counterpart BYU about playing a game in Cowboys Stadium.

When the game will be played is a bit up in the air, as BYU already has twelve games scheduled in 2011. Since one of BYU's games is being played in Hawaii, however, the Cougars are allowed to schedule a thirteenth game next season. As of now the two open dates on BYU's schedule are October 29 and November 26. Odds are that November 26 is out of the question since it's on Thanksgiving weekend and the Cowboys traditionally play a home game on Thanksgiving, so preparing for two games in a matter of days would be a bit much.

So unless BYU rearranges the rest of its schedule, or drops another game, odds are if this matchup happens it'll be on October 29.

The game is not yet set in stone, though indications are that it should be announced in the coming days. According to TCU AD Chris Del Conte, TCU plans on releasing its 2011 schedule soon.
