College Football Open Thread: UNLV Vs. Minnesota

College football is finally here!

With that out of the way, we are back at it with open threads, so please drop by and talk about Thursday night's college football games. There is only one Mountain West game tonight and it is the last game of the night between the Minnesota Golden Gophers traveling to face the UNLV Rebels.

For UNLV to get the win they must get their running game going against Minnesota, because that is the strength of this team. If Tim Cornett, Bradley Randle and Dionza Bradford can get things going on the ground then UNLV should be fine.

Both teams are not good, so this is going to be a matchup where the team that makes less mistakes and plays a little better than they are capable of will win.

Minnesota at UNLV

Time: 8 p.m. PT

TV: CBS Sports Network

Radio: SIRIUS and XM 85, ESPN Radio 1100

Line: Minnesota (-9.5)

However here are the other games tonight worth talking about:

• No. 9 South Carolina at Vanderbilt, 7 p.m. ET - ESPN
• UCLA at Rice, 7:30 p.m. ET - CBS Sports Network
• Washington State at BYU, 8:15 p.m. - ESPN2
