Football Friday, I-AA and National Style
While it's a quiet weekend for the Terps (and the Mids and the Hokies), it's a huge college football weekend nationally, and I wanted to make you aware of a few of our college football offerings available on the site today (and in the paper tomorrow).
With Oklahoma-Texas and LSU-Florida leading the menu of national games this weekend, Steve Yanda looks at whether the SEC's superiority is being threatened by the Big 12, at least for a year. Also, there's another matchup of top five teams this weekend, and it's a little closer to home: Top-ranked James Madison takes on Richmond in a key game in the Colonial Athletic Association, which Kathy Orton tells us has quickly become the top conference in division I-AA. Finally, the lone team among our locals playing this weekend, Virginia, takes on East Carolina, which has had nearly as turbulent a season as Maryland. Zach Berman looks at two true freshmen from the WCAC who are unexpectedly contributing immediately for the Cavaliers.
Plus, Steve was at Wake Forest's victory over Clemson last night. His account of the game is here, and he likely will have some further thoughts to share here during the day, plus a story on Demon Deacons next week during the countdown to their huge Atlantic Division game in Byrd Stadium. Let the countdown to that one begin, and enjoy tomorrow's games.
