It is Thursday night, and- (with apologies to last night's MACaction - time for football to start back up for the weekend. BYU will be making the trip north to play on Boise State's smurf turf at 6pm Pacific on ESPN, while the pros are represented by the Giants and Panthers on the NFL Network.

I'll also be using this thread to share some notes on the viewing parties for Saturday's game against Oregon State. The game is set to kickoff at 12:30pm PDT/3:30pm EDT, and has been picked up by ABC, meaning the game will be aired nationally either on ABC or on ESPN2, depending on region. While this is not a Pac-12 Network game,

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.
