The Sept. 2 UH-USC game will be shown on ESPN.
Kickoff is at 5 p.m. at Aloha Stadium.
UH has commissioned a poll to find out the preferred starting time for home kickoffs. Last year, WAC games started at 5 p.m. to allow visiting teams to make the redeye flights back to the Mainland. Some fans thought the start was too early. Reporters with lousy deadlines loved the 5 p.m.
When do you think the home games should start? I’d like to hear your views although, keep in my mind, my opinion outweighs yours (when it comes to deadline issues).
