College football and a noon Saturday game

The University of Minnesota Gophers may no longer play in the Metrodome, but that didn’t mean the Twins were unaffected by the college football schedule. Today’s game was made a noon contest so that the Twins didn’t interfere with the home opener of TCF Stadium. The big difference? No 11 a.m. start time and there’s no way this game is postponed if it goes past a certain time today.

Here are today’s lineups:

A’s (63-77)
4th place in AL West, 22 games back
 

Adam Kennedy, 3B
Rajai Davis, CF
Kurt Suzuki, C
Jack Cust, DH
Scott Hairston, LF
Mark Ellis, 2B
Daric Barton, 1B
Eric Patterson, RF
Cliff Pennington, SS

Pitching: LHP Brett Anderson (8-10, 4.45)

Twins (70-71)
2nd place in AL Central, 5.5 games back

Denard Span, CF
Orlando Cabrera, SS
Joe Mauer, DH
Justin Morneau, 1B
Jason Kubel, LF
Michael Cuddyer, RF
Brendan Harris, 3B
Mike Redmond, C
Nick Punto, 2B
Pitching: RHP Jeff Manship (0-0, 4.41)
