College Football Update

The early games are mostly over, let's recap some of the key early games.
  • Appalachian State, the team that won the National Championship in back to back years (In Division I-AA, or whatever they call it now), has upset the no.-5 ranked Michigan Wolverines 34-32.

    Wow, what a game. Appalachian State had the lead for most of the game, but a touchdown by Mike Hart gave the Wolverines the lead with less than five minutes left in the game.

    AP State kicker Julian Rauch gave the team the lead with a 41-yard field goal with 30 seconds left.

    AP State blocked a game winning field goal by Michigan Kicker Jason Gingell and time expired. That was Gingell's second miss of the game.

    Even if Big Blue had won, this was still a demoralizing game for the Wolverines. But give credit where credit is due, Appalachian State brought their A-game today.

    It's not every day that a Division I-AA team can walk into "The Big House" and beat the Michigan Wolverines. Great job guys
  • A congratulations goes out to the Virginia Tech Hokies, who defeated Eastern Carolina University, 17-7. It was an important win, even though the Hokies struggled at times and were down 7-3, into the second quarter. A Victor Harris interception, late in the first half, put the Hokies in the lead for good.
  • Congratulations to Randy Shannon, for getting his first win as coach at the University of Miami. The Hurricanes defeated Marshall 37-3.

I'll be back with more updates later.

See ya
