I went Des Moines last night with my two sons to watch Rob Ash's Montana State team trip to Des Moines, to play his former team in Drake. Ash coached Drake for 18 years before going to Bozeman five years ago.
The Bulldogs gave the #4 ranked Bobcats all they could handle and it proved to me that the Pioneer Football League deserves to have its champion play in the FCS 20-team playoff field.
MSU wound up winning 34-24 but Drake lead into the fourth quarter 24-21

MADISON, Wis--I am in Madison today to see if Northern Iowa can pull off the upset against the Badgers. It is a nice day in central Wisconsin with temps right now in the upper 70s.
Wisconsin is ranked #12 in both of the FBS polls. UNI is ranked #9 in the College Sporting News and Sports Network Polls within the preseason.
Coach Mark Farley is entering his 12th season as the head man for UNI and has won from the start--winning 60 of his 80 contests.
