Early Football Kickoff - The governor of Minnesota, Democrat Mark Dayton, said he was looking out for the needs of college students when he went after Saturday morning kickoff times in late 2014. Dayton told the St. Paul Pioneer Press, "I'm going to propose that we pass a law that no (Division I FBS) football game in Minnesota can start before noon." Blaming TV networks for college game schedules, the governor decided that students didn't want to be awake at 9am on a Saturday to start tailgating before University of Minnesota football games. When asked if he was serious, the governor said he had been talked out of it for 10 years while he was a US Senator and intended to get other Big Ten state governors involved.
