Yes, the most wonderful time of the year begins next Thursday, August 25th! The NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) kicks off the 2016 college football season with a slate of four Thursday night games.
The LYON COLLEGE SCOTS (helmet at left) start their second season of intercollegiate football by hosting the WAYLAND BAPTIST UNIVERSITY PIONEERS (should be the Flying W’s).
The other three games:
The CUMBERLAND UNIVERSITY PHOENIX – in their first football season under their new team name – welcome the LINDSEY WILSON COLLEGE BLUE RAIDERS. Meanwhile the UNIVERSITY OF JAMESTOWN JIMMIES pay a visit to the VALLEY CITY STATE VIKINGS and the CAMPBELLSVILLE UNIVERSITY TIGERS travel to face the UNIVERSITY OF THE CUMBERLANDS PATRIOTS.
