3 Hours ...

Postby Cane from the Bend » Sat Aug 25, 2018 2:39 pm

College Football is Back today, and the first Kickoff will be @ 5:30 this afternoon. 2:30 if you're living on the edge of the map, like Donovan.

Here is Today's line up of games:
Duquesne @ UMass --- 5:30 PM
North Carolina A&T @ Jacksonville State --- 7:00 PM
Prairie View @ Rice --- 7:00 PM
Hawai'i @ Colorado State --- 7:30 PM
Wyoming @ New Mexico State --- 10:00 PM

Four of the 5 feature FBS schools. Two of which will be FBS teams facing one another, and one being a Mountain West Conference match up.

To get into the spirit of things here's a quick look at the Venues many will be attending this year:

[Spence, turn your volume off until 2:11] :lol:

WOW! Cane, if I had a product to sell, you would be the man. This made me so ready.

Does that count for going church this week? There is something about high school football that brings out some of my best memories over the years.

I don't know if anyone else has been watching, but Prairie View is sure taking it to Rice.

After starting off scoring on their first three drives, 2 Touchdowns [the second of which they missed the extra point], followed by 2 field goals, Prairie View came storming back with 3 Touchdowns [transfer wide receiver from Oregon is befuddling the Owls].

Prairie View took the lead 21-19 just before the half. They took the lead with a 30 second drive that left 6 seconds in the first half.

Not watching the Rice PVAM game, but have been watching Hawaii. That QB looks pretty good tonite. He is mobile and made some really nice decisions. They are really putting it on Colo State and I'm not sure many ppl would've expected that. Still lots of time but the Rams defense hasnt shown much to believe a comeback is coming. Not saying Hawaii is gonna be great but this is a nice conference win for them to start the season, as long as they hold on.

Man, Prairie View was up 28-19 in the 4th ... then, with the ball, they fumbled on a bad exchange, Rice recovered, scoring a Touchdown. The next drive, Prairie View has a bad snap on a punt attempt, fumbling the ball into the end zone, where the punter just takes it out of the back of the end zone for a safety.

Tie game, and Prairie View has to punt.

Rice had decent field position. This is some game.

4th & 1 ... Rice is going to go for it. A timeout was called, so they went to commercial. There is about 7 and a half minutes left.

I agree ... I've been watching this game on & off. Hawaii is looking better than I expected. I thought Col State would have a decent team this season. But right now, you're right. That defense looks confused. Sort of the way you'd expect Hawaii's defense to play.

Now, I've seen some ridiculous things happen in college football games. The Rams seem to have found some life. But they need to step up here on defense to have any sort of a chance to do something special.

Woa! That was crazy!

Rice tries running the ball into the end zone with under 10 seconds left, with the runner being tackled with 3 seconds and the clock ticking. They get the time out called with 2 seconds. They kick a field goal to win.

That was a fun game.

Colorado State is making a game of this. If Hawaii's offense can't get things going here, they may be dead in the water.

The Rams are scoring fast, and the Warriors D looks gassed.

O'Boy ... Hawaii fumbles. Colorado State recovers. Hawaii calls their second timeout.

It's still a 17 lead. But there is quite a bit of time left here in the 4th.
