Colorado game time moved

The kickoff for the Georgia-Colorado game on Oct. 2 has been shifted back a few hours.

The game will now start at 7 p.m. eastern time, it was announced Tuesday afternoon. It had previously been announced as a 4:30 start.

It will still be televised by Fox Sports Net.

Here's an official explanation the media just got via e-mail:

The change came about after CU’s and the Big 12’s television network partners re-examined an earlier but tentative decision to allow the game to be televised inside an exclusive ABC telecast window.

ABC has only one time slot for a Big 12 Conference game that day, and has already committed to televising the Oklahoma-Texas game in its afternoon window (1:30 p.m. MDT). The kickoff adjustment allows the Colorado-Georgia game to be televised in the later prime time window and afford ABC its full exclusivity in the afternoon.

Translation: Upon further review, FOX decided it really didn't want Georgia-Colorado colliding with the Red River Shootout. (Which normally started at 11 a.m. central time, but has been shifted back to be the prime 3:30 p.m. eastern slot.)

Kind of makes you wonder why they didn't agree to have Georgia-Colorado be a night game in the first place. But oh well, not a huge deal. (Except to those of us who might've liked two nights to party in Boulder.)

Or note to Colorado: YOU DON'T MESS WITH THE BIG 12.
