Utah and Texas State: A Tale of Two 2020 Seasons
About 14 minutes ago, at 7:30 PM pacific time, Utah kicked off against USC.

It is their first game of the season. On November 21st.

About 4 hours before, Texas State beat Arkansas State.

It was their 11th game of the season. Their first game was 77 days ago, a September 5th match vs SMU.

Sweet Jeebus.

Insane. One team played a complete traditional 11-game season before another kicked off their opening game.

That's a great way to frame it.

Another way this season has been more like ones I grew up with in the 70s is the later start most teams have had. Not only were seasons back then 11 games, but they often didn't start until mid-September. A typical season circa 1980 was to play your first game around September 15th and your last (pre-bowl) on the Thanksgiving weekend, with no "bye" weeks. Just eleven straight weeks of football between around September 15th and November 25th.

04-cheers
