Football Begins Tonight with Buckeyes, Cyclones and Utes among the many teams kicking off the 2010 College Football season

It's Labor Day Weekend and the Kickoff of the 2010 College Football season begins Thursday with several match ups on TV and otherwise (Times are Central Time) ...

Top Game of the Day:
#22 Pittsburgh @ #13 Utah, 7:30 p.m, Versus (HD)

Look for a solid game in a rematch of the 2005 Fiesta Bowl: look for the Utes to likely pull it off at home! Utes by 4.

Iowa State opens at Jack Trice:

Northern Illinois @ Iowa State, 6:30 p.m.
(CSNC / CSNBA / FSN affiliates) (HD)

The Cyclones begin their second season under Coach Paul Rhoads in a tough MAC vs. Big 12 North match up. The Cyclones should win this one, but NIU is more than capable. Look for a 30-26 Cyclone victory to open the 2010 season!

BCS upset alert on EPSNU?
Minnesota @ Middle Tennessee, 6:30 p.m., ESPNU (HD)

Prior to the suspension of the Middle Tennessee #1 QB, this game had upset written all over it. Look for the new look Gophers to pull this one out on the road for the Big Ten's first road win of the year. Minnesota 30 Middle Tennessee 20

#2 Ohio State opens in Columbus on BTN
Marshall @ #2 Ohio State, 6:30 p.m.

The Buckeyes should score and dominate Marshall in the opener. Our Pick: Ohio State 38, Marshall 9

Big Ten Network also has IU on!
Towson @ Indiana, 6:30 p.m.

The Hoosiers should win vs. Towson, who played at Northwestern in '09. Look for the Pistol offense to score and the Hoosier defense to hold Towson in check. Hoosiers 45, Towson 17

SEC vs. C-USA match up to open season
Southern Miss @ South Carolina, 6:30 p.m., ESPN (HD)

The Ole Ball Coach Steve Spurrier should have South Carolina ready, despite the NCAA agent issues impacting a Gamecock player. Gamecocks by 13.

What does USC have to play for in 2010?
USC (on probation) @ Hawaii, 10:00 p.m., ESPN (HD)

Coach Lane Kiffin begins his era at USC with little to play for in his first two seasons, due to probation. Will the Trojans be motivated week in and week out? This Pac Ten vs. WAC contest will close out Day 1 of the 2010 College Football season on ESPN! Our pick: USC
