VERSUS, USA, Syfy and G4 — as well as the NFL Network — will carry the 90-pregame show known as “NFL Kickoff 2011 Presented by EA Sports,” a glorious collision of musical entertainment and hard-nosed football analysis.

Kickoff is at 8:30 EDT and the White House has promised that Obama’s speech before Congress will end by then. (Otherwise, he won’t have time to make his Kickoff Nachos. Not really. That’s a joke.)

Musical performers are expected to include Kid Rock, Lady Antebellum and Maroon 5.
