Brenham- So much for easing into the schedule. Blinn will kick off its football season Thursday against the Butler Grizzlies in Kansas.
Butler is the top-ranked team in the NJCAA poll while the Buccaneers are second.
The Grizzlies won the 2007 National Championship while the Bucs took the title in 2006.
The Battle of the Champions will be played in the 24,000-seat Cessna Stadium on the Wichita State University campus.
The ball goes on the tee at 7pm.
