They’ve already said Olson is on the NFL team with Davis, IIRC
Correct. He's going to be on their second team until Brady gets bored, and then he'll move back.

If you can book a domestic flight to a major airport six months in advance but 1-3 days before they announce the day of the game you have to jump at it.

Here is the fox official release. Interesting that they are putting Rutgers at USC on immediately after game 1 of World Series at 11 eastern. Nice fuck you to Rutgers fans.

With a bye week Iowa only plays on two of five Saturdays in November

Think of the yard work time and we don’t even need Iowa to start off 2-2!

Preemptive reminder for those of you planning to tavern up for this that you know what I think of you.

Short week traveling West off of playing Wisconsin is not ideal
Does the 3 hour flight to L.A. even matter? Is that significantly worse than a 2 hour flight to Michigan?

Time change plus a day less rest, I think, is what he’s getting at.

Understand. I just don’t think the “traveling west” part is really material. Especially for college students who are taking a charter flight.

Will the sun be setting during the game?

I think it has more to do with the fact that Iowa has been pretty terrible on the field traveling west in the regular season under Ferentz, and giving them one less day to prepare isn't great.

Again, unless UCLA is undefeated or something tickets are going to be easy for this game/time slot. No one who is at or near UCLA will be coming to the game. If you left at 5 pm from Westwood you wouldn't make to the stadium/through queue to park until at least 6:30, if not 7 pm. It is hellish soulcrushing traffic. God help any of you of you who try to come in from the Westside that afternoon.

Iowa plays so well out west I’m definitely chomping at the bit to drop thousands to watch it in person.
Thousands? You and the whole family flying first class and staying the whole week prior??

I will be in Long Beach. I will ask my buddy if his house has enough room for a stranger I've never met from the internet who doesn't drink to join us.

We can also just meet up in Breck and fly out together.

Likely to fly in Thursday or Friday morning, return flight on Sunday.

I'm a poor so am looking at Allegiant which is about $150 round trip but they only fly on Wednesdays and Sundays which may be perfect if the plane doesn't crash.

I get writing to fly direct but there are scores of flights daily to any one of about five equally convenient airports (LAX, Long Beach, John Wayne, Burbank, Ontario) on any major airline connecting various in Denver or ORD (United), Salt Lake (Delta), Dallas (American), and wherever Southwest goes through.

This game is the Friday after the election. An asskicking of UCLA should be a four hour reprieve from an otherwise noisy week.
