The unanimous decision by the three-judge panel of the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago criticized the justifications both states gave for the bans, several times singling out the argument that marriage between a man and a woman is tradition.

Tennessee ruined that theory, with help from Utah State. Even so, witnessing all three of the state’s FBS teams in three venues in season openers — with the added bonus of catching Gary Andersen’s Wisconsin team — was instructive.
