ESPN Thursday Night Schedule Announced

Steve Spurrier spent the 2007 postseason at home after his Gamecocks finished a disappointing 6-6. No wonder Spurrier and the gang are itching to play. The Gamecocks will have played two games before anybody else in 2008 because they are featured in ESPN's first two Thursday night telecasts

South Carolina will play host to North Carolina State on Aug. 28 and travel to Vanderbilt on Sept. 4.

Oregon State plays Stanford in the other opener on Aug. 28. That game will be telecast on ESPN2, according to Scott Wolf of the L.A. Daily News.

By our calculation, the season starts in 177 days. Please plan accordingly. ...

Interesting that So. Carolina are the only SEC games listed. The SEC usually has a steady stream of Thursday night ESPN games.

Auburn and Vandy have games in there... but it's definitely predominately ACC and Big East games
