There are lots of big games coming up this next weekend for your viewing pleasure and much to talk about from last weekend’s game.
College Football Playoffs
Yes, there are playoffs at every level of College Football except the major college level. It’s nice to see National Champions decided through a playoff system instead of on paper!
Congrats to the Eastern Washington University (EWU) Eagles team! They beat North Dakota State University (NDSU) last Saturday to head to the semi-finals. NDSU had beaten the Montana State Bobcats in the playoffs. EWU will host Villanova on Friday night in a semifinal game. The game is scheduled to be broadcast on ESPN2 at 6:00 p.m. (Mountain Time).
The bad news is that EWU’s outstanding all America running back Taiwan Jones has a fractured foot and is not expected to play Friday night. Jones carried the ball 20 times for 230 yards against NDSU.
Montana’s best college football team, the Carroll College Fighting Saints, are once again playing for the NAIA National Championship. They will play Saturday against Sioux Falls (SD) in Rome, Georgia. According to this article, the game starts at 2:30 p.m. (Mountain Time) and will be broadcast on CBS College Sports.
Hopefully the local CBS stations or some local station will broadcast it for all of Montana to see.
BOWL TIME! Continue reading
