Not that it matters in the least, but 10:30.  But then nobody in Bristol is attending the game so it's not an issue.  It's the locals that seem to have an issue with night games.  A lot of the country LOVES going to night games.  And on the east coast those TV prime time games kick off at...7:30/8pm locally.  But not in the West, for whatever reason.

Ahh so now you move the goal posts and try to make this about attendance, but I did not see the OP mention that. The late night reference is in relation to the broadcasting environment for the most part. 7:30 PST games rarely have super favorable matchups like a 7:30 EST game would, and why would they, they PST game will be when most of the east coast is heading to bed. Its not an apples to apples comparison.

Not really.  My point all along was about the western locals complaining about night kickoffs.  Something that is smiled upon east of the Rockies.  Which was the issue I was responding to, not TV ratings.  I've seen people HERE complain about 7pm kickoffs.  Not because Gomer in Mayberry, NC, wont stay up to watch, but because they simply dont like attending night games.  The goal posts are in the same spot.

Another thing the east and central time zone people seem not to realize.

How many hours have you been watching CFB when the 7:30 EST game kicks? 7.5 hours, maybe 8.5 if there is an early kick. How many hours have you been watching CFB when 7:30 PST game kicks? 10.5 - 11.5 hours. Again, these are things that people who don't live out here ever think about. And guess what we know east coasters aren't watching 10 hours of CFB, ratings and east coast AP voters prove it time and time again. Pretending like time zone isn't beneficial or detrimental these days is just goofy.

It was all good and fun until the Big 10 decided to just grab everybody else, too. 

Edit: In all seriousness how is the Pac 12 supposed to get any TV deal done now that those four schools are back on the Big 10 board. Sucks to be the Pac 12 commish right now.

As much as they don't deserve it, I kinda wanna see how Cal fans - if there are any - react to being with kindred schools like Rutgers, Maryland and Penn State.

Berkeley and Happy Valley are a perfect match, ya know.

Warren says there are schools that would add value.

Then sources mention six.

Additionally in the article other sources say if the Big 10 raids the PAC, then Az, ASU, CO and UT could go to the Big 12.

I feel like I am reading the same scenarios over and over again. That same speculation has been on message boards and social media for weeks.

Don’t see Fresno fans complain about 7:00 pm kick-offs.   It’s the 12:00 noon kick-offs that will kill you.   
 

On the other hand done a couple late night Nevada games and froze my ass off.

People in cold weather locales don't like night games. People in Cali love them cause it gives them more beach time.

Looks like they will have to wait until the end of the contract to start negotioans.

As @Headbuttinsisted, this announcement won't cause any instability.  B)

It's already causing the San Andreas to shake in PAC Country.

What about back to back 9am kicks for SDSU so big CBS could have an early lead in their SEC broadcasts ? That shit sucks.

Haha. In Fresno they love them because middle of the day in September is brutal. 

Early season night games are great.  Late season night games, not so much.

That Boise game nearly killed me. Got up at 6AM to make it to Carson by game time.  Started drinking in the parking lot with my retired, alcoholic cousin.  Had my last beer at half time of the SDSU/USC BB train wreck around 10PM in the evening.

As they say:  "You can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning"
