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
TOWSON, MD. — It's better late than never as I traveled the three hours from Lehigh University to Towson University for the second game of my doubleheader as Villanova and Towson open Colonial Athletic Association play.
I arrived in the press box just in time to watch Towson score on a 47-yard screen pass Grant Enders to Dominique Booker as the Tigers took a 7-0 lead.
Both teams moved the ball well on their first drives of the quarter, but only Towson was rewarded.
BETHLEHAM, PA. — It didn't take long for New Hampshire to get on the scoreboard in this matchup between two top-25 FCS teams.
The Wildcats sliced through the Mountain Hawk defense to go 75 yards in nine plays, with Kevin Decker scoring on a third-down, two-yard bootleg to make it 7-0 with 12:17 remaining in the first quarter.
At the Georgia Dome. Like a CAA game. Getting ready to kickoff. ODU in white and Georgia State (I'll call them GSU for brevity) in their blue.
I went 18-6 last Saturday, adding to my 17-1 to make for a nice 35-7 record to start out the year, or a torrid 83.3% success rate.
Some of my flops were big ones - I missed the two big FBS upsets (picking Sacramento State to lose to Oregon State and Duke to lose to Richmond), while missing on a host of other FBS upsets that I went a little nuts with (Southeast Louisiana over Tulane? McNeese State over Kansas? James Madison over North Carolina?).
But some nice hits
