When is the best time to play a college football game?
Former college football quarterback and current analyst Danny Kanell was asked Wednesday when is the best time to play a game, so we’re breaking the topic.
An interesting topic that surfaced on Twitter on Wednesday was a simple question regarding college football kickoffs: when is the best time to play a college football game?
It’s kind of an interesting question and it was posed to college football fans on Twitter by analyst Danny Kanell who played for Florida State and later for the New York Giants in the NFL.
Of course, there are three main time windows for college football games and they are (according to Eastern Standard Time) 12:00 p.m., 3:30 p.m., and 8:00 p.m. It’s classic hours and when Kanell posted the question on Twitter, thousands of fans responded.
When is the best time for a college football game?
Of course, that’s subjective, as we’ve learned. Media members said they tended to prefer earlier games for obvious (work) reasons, especially because those 8 p.m. kickoffs aren’t the best for sleep habits or time frames. (where they still exist).
My favorite is the 3:30 p.m. window and that’s for several reasons. While the noon kickoff is best for watching TV, since you want to watch college football on Saturdays as soon as possible, there’s nothing like watching the afternoon turn into an evening like at the Rose Bowl or in another cool setting.
It just adds to the scenery as the game starts in the sun and ends in the night.
Morning games probably aren’t as fun for fans in terms of tailgating and the whole experience and even though night games are really exciting, outside of college students, like those in Texas who are petition for the Texas-Alabama game to be played at night, most prefer to watch a game played at noon or 3:30 p.m.
Everyone has their own opinion, so what’s yours? When is the best time to watch a college football game?
