Turns out Owls prefer daytime

Nocturnal, shmocturnal.

I'm back to deliver the best news a college football writer can ask for: a non-night kickoff! USF's Oct. 6 game at Florida Atlantic in Fort Lauderdale's Lockhart Stadium will have a dreamy 4 p.m. kickoff, according to So much for Owls (or game-story writers) only being active at night.

It's the first sign of the Bulls coming out during the day this fall -- the other announced kickoff times are all at night, including a really-at-night 9 p.m. ET kickoff at Auburn. The West Virginia and Rutgers games are weeknights, so their kickoffs won't be changing, and USF prefers a 7 p.m. kickoff on home games, so that leaves Connecticut, Syracuse and Pittsburgh as the most likely options for daytime football.

I've got lots to catch up on, so keep checking back today. Enjoyed the week off but this should be a busy one, with the Big East preseason football media gathering now just a week away in Rhode Island. Questions? Comments? Anything else I missed?
