One week from today the 2018 college football season kicks off in the divisions covered here at Balladeer’s Blog. Some of the games scheduled for next Thursday night:
The 20th ranked ROCKY MOUNTAIN COLLEGE BATTLIN’ BEARS will be hosting the CARROLL (MT) COLLEGE FIGHTING SAINTS. It’s a risky opening week clash between two Frontier Conference teams.
The number 22 team in the nation, the SOUTHWESTERN ASSEMBLIES OF GOD UNIVERSITY LIONS, will take it on the road against the (RV) EVANGEL UNIVERSITY CRUSADERS. Crucial early season positioning is on the line in this battle.
At number 25 are the DAKOTA STATE TROJANS, who travel to face the DAKOTA WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY TIGERS (should be the Blue Tigers). This matchup will be the Midco Sports Network’s Game of the Week.
The UNION (KY) BULLDOGS stay at home next Thursday night and will play host to the CINCINNATI CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY EAGLES (should be the Bridgers). It’s the Mid-South Conference’s Appalachian Division taking on the Blue Grass Division.
The IOWA WESTERN COLLEGE REIVERS, the Number 2 team in the nation, pay a visit to the COFFEYVILLE COLLEGE RED RAVENS. The Reivers’ championship hopes are on the line, while the Red Ravens are itching to make the Top 20.
The 5th ranked INDEPENDENCE COLLEGE PIRATES ( No, that’s not a typo. If you’ve been away from NJCAA football for awhile the Pirates are legit.) are taking it on the road to battle the DODGE CITY COLLEGE CONQUISTADORS.
It’s a collision between TWO ranked teams here as the number 15 GEORGIA MILITARY COLLEGE BULLDOGS visit the 18th ranked NAVARRO COLLEGE BULLDOGS. You can insert your own Dog-Fight joke here.
The storied HUTCHINSON COLLEGE BLUE DRAGONS will host the ELLSWORTH COLLEGE PANTHERS. Conference pride will be at stake as the Jayhawk Conference takes on the Iowa College Athletic Conference.
