Thursday, September 9th Auburn vs Mississippi State on ESPN. Isn’t this the date & time slot ESPN (MNF) will be showing the opening game of the NFL Season with New Orleans playing a team to be announced?

NBC has that NFL Opener actually. ESPN has still showed college football at the same time in previous years.
