They paid Cal and Hawaii a fortune I believe. This is like moving a game to Reliant.

EDIT: 7 figures...

Not a fan of this move though. Why give up your sexiest home game?

$$$$$.......plus, not having to endure the embarassment of being skunked at home.

I agree with you. I'm hearing from the Stanford side that the game would likely be the week of August 21st (but likely NOT Saturday the 26th), so that our guys could get back in time for the first week of classes. Not sure how the true Freshmen missing O Week is going to go over with the Administration.

Yeah, but it becomes a blow out in a nationally televised game; likely the first FBS game of the season.

Hahaha you're kidding right? You don't think they would trade 15 freshmen missing orientation for 10 million+ dollars ?????

Rice classes start on the 21st.

The game would probably be played on Saturday the 26th in Australia (Friday evening, the 25th in the US), if I had to guess.
