One of the things I love about Thursday nights is being able to pull up a chair, eat some dinner and watch the weekly Football Championship Subdivision game on ESPNU.
Tonight's contest from the Southwestern Athletic Conference will be Prairie View at Arkansas-Pine Bluff. It is pretty much a make-or-break game for both teams as they try to stay in the SWAC championship race.
Coming off its first league title since the Palaeolithic age, Prairie View has struggled to a 2-3 record overall and 2-2 in the SWAC, including a loss to Grambling.
Injuries, particularly to offensive playmakers like K.J. Black at quarterback and running back Donald Babers, have slowed the Panthers.
The Golden Lions are 2-2 overall and 1-1 in conference as they tried to rebuild their program.
It may be time for the Major League Baseball playoffs for everyone else, but I'm ready for some FCS football to kickoff a big weekend of games.
