And so it begins

Boston College and Central Michigan just kicked off. The college football season has begun!

P.S. You can watch the Buffalo-Temple game here.

Also underway: Connecticut vs. Rhode Island! Audio here.

UPDATE: It’s a thriller in Buffalo, where, after 52 minutes and 22 seconds of scoreless play, including two missed field goals by the Bulls, Buffalo just took a 3-0 lead on a field goal with 7:38 left! Woohoo! America’s two worst college-football teams, living up to their lofty reputations! LOL!

Meanwhile, Central Michigan misses several golden opportunities and loses to Boston College, 31-24, in a game which did not exactly make the Eagles look impressive.

UPDATE 2: Buffalo and Temple are going to overtime… tied at 3!

Why, it’s almost like an SEC game! :) (Indeed, in a nationally televised tilt, South Carolina leads Mississippi State, 3-0 in the third quarter. Let’s hear it for the Ol’ Ball Coach!)

UPDATE 3: BUFFALO WINS!!! 9-3 in overtime!!! WOOHOO!!!

P.S. Heh:

It was the Bulls’ first season-opening victory since 1997 when they were a Division I-AA program. It also marked the first time Buffalo has had a winning record at any point in a season since opening the 1998 season 4-3.

In other news, Joe Lieberman and Connecticut easily defeated Lincoln Chaffee and Rhode Island in the DINO-RINO Bowl. :) Final score, UConn 52, URI 7.

Meanwhile, could the season’s first upset be Toledo over Iowa State? Or how about NAU over ASU?

FINAL UPDATE: Iowa State won in triple-overtime, and Arizona State pulled away in the fourth quarter. So, no real upsets yesterday.

Here’s the Buffalo News article about Buffalo’s win. And here’s the Hartford Courant article about UConn’s win.

    South Carolina vs. Mississippi State: Classic SEC snoozefest.

  4. B. Minich says:

    3-3 into OT – seems appropriate for those two programs.

  5. Andrew says:

    ASU’s not looking all that fearsome. They’re not going to come anywhere close to challenging USC if they can’t rush the ball.

    Anytime Corner Rat!!!

    Well, yeah, that does sound disturbingly like an SEC game. Unless it was in Baton Rouge, in which case the visitors would have missed 4 field goals, instead. Geaux Tigers!
