When is kickoff time for tonight's BCS title game?

Let's say for the sake of accuracy that I want to skip ESPN's coma-inducing pregame show and tune in just in time for the kickoff of tonight's BCS college football championship game between Oregon and Auburn. What time would that be? The best estimate I can find using my poor google-fu is "approximately 9pm ET".

Has anybody got a more accurate kickoff time?

My local paper says 5:30 Pacific. So there's probably at least half an hour of bull before kickoff.

I find that the Vegas sports line websites often have the more accurate kick-off (tip-off, etc.) times as well. Presuming they want to allow bidding up to the last minute.
