Pretty sure it's a TV thing, same as the other sports.
They want to get 10+ minutes of buildup and advertising in before the game starts, and if they start that 12 minutes early then a) it ruins their other programming, which generally runs in half hour blocks, and b) people don't tune in for it. So they start that at 7:30 and start the game ~12 minutes later.

To give the fans time to get to their seats?
