MINNEAPOLIS, MN--I am at the new University of Minnesota TCF Bank Stadium. One note is that the press box is in the far east end zone so it offers a unique siteline.
This game between the Bison and the Gophers is one that Minnesota is looking for revenge after NDSU upset the Gophers in 2007 27-21. Minnesota won the 2006 contest by blocking a field goal attempt as time expired 10-9.
NDSU is 4-3 since moving up to the Division I ranks against FBS teams, including
COLUMBIA, MO--I am in the Show-Me-State for this FCS-FBS battle between the Leathernecks and Tigers.
The game has started and WIU went three and out on their opening position and Missouri went four plays and their quarterback James Franklin went deep on a 4th and 3 play to wide out Wes Kemp to put the Tigers up 7-0 at the 11:32 mark of the 1st qtr.
WIU got a good kickoff return out to their own 45 yard line but went three and out again.
VERMILLION, S.D.--Today, I witnessed the defending national champions Eagles play South Dakota. I got to take my two sons to the game and we got to see an upset on the DakotaDome astroturf.
USd QB Dante Warren had a rushing and passing touchdown and kicker Kevin Robb had three field goals as the Coyotes upset the Eagles 30-17.
The Coyotes took a 21-0 lead in the second quarter before EWU finally scored. Warren scored on a 2-yard run and threw a 48-yard touchdown
AMES, IA--Well, I made the hard drive on I-80 then to I-35 to get to Ames. This is a matchup between the Panthers and Cyclones that could be an upset in my opinion.
Temperatures are at 71 degress but with 94% humidity so this non-climate controlled press box is a bit steamy.
This is the 27th time that these two schools have played with UNI winning just once, in 2007. ISU won 27-0 last year.
UNI brings a wealth of experience back with 10 of its top
IOWA CITY, IA--I am in Hawkeye country for the Ohio Valley's Golden Eagle matchup with the Big Ten's Hawkeys for the first half of my double header in this state (will travel to Ames after this to see Northern Iowa play Iowa State tonight). This is the first time TTU has faced a team from the Big Ten Conference. TTU is experienced with 20 starters returning and 31 players that have at least started a game.
TTU is coming off a 5-6 record and 4-4 within OVC play. Iowa was 8-5 last
