It is Thursday night. That means that football is back! This is your place to talk about tonight's action on the gridiron, and also to find out where to watch this Saturday's UCLA game with a group of fellow Bruins.
Thursday night is here again, and with it, more football. There are three college games tonight: Arkansas State's game at FIU started at 4:30pm PDT and is airing on ESPNU, streamable via ESPN360. East Carolina @ Central Florida is about to start on the CBS Sports Network. But tonight's primary college game is another Pac-12 matchup: Southern Cal travels to Salt Lake City to take on Utah. Kickoff is 6pm PDT/9pm EDT on ESPN, and can also be streamed via ESPN360.
The NFL is also back on air tonight, when the Rams take on the Arizona Cardinals in St. Louis. Kickoff is at 5:20pm PDT/8:20pm EDT on the NFL Network.
These are the watch parties that we are aware of for this week's game. In past weeks, we have posted other alumni gatherings that may or may not be meeting this Saturday. If you have info on the status of those gatherings, or know of any others - whether 'official' parties or if you are just planning on hitting up a sports bar and want to see if any other Bruins are in the vicinity and want to join you - let us know in the comments.
