College Football Season

September 3, 2013
By

This past weekend another season of college football got underway. Is your Alma Mater one of the 150 or more who can still go undefeated? This time of the year every college team has dreams of a national championship or an undefeated season. There were the usual routs, because some universities still like to schedule a cream puff to start their season. There is nothing like an SEC team playing a university that just became D1. Then there are teams like UC and Purdue whose opener is as tough as any mid-season conference game. One thing is for certain, we now have college football back and, before you know it, the MAC teams will be playing Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday night specials for ESPN. For you Ball State fans, this is the way to see the Cardinals; and for some of the MAC powers, their chance to be on national TV. It used to be that the Big Ten scheduled MAC schools for an easy early season win. That was until Ohio University, Toledo, and Central Michigan started regularly beating some of the Big Ten Schools. These MAC teams now demand and get recognition in some of the bigger bowls before the New Years. No one is safe drawing one of these schools in a bowl game. After all, can you say Ben Roethlisberger?
