COLLEGE FOOTBALL SEASON 2013 KICKS OFF TONIGHT

Rocky Mountain CollegeIt’s the most wonderful time of the year! The 2013 college football season kicks off tonight in the divisions covered by Balladeer’s Blog!

This matchup in the NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) is the only game tonight but Saturday will see a full slate of gridiron action. THREE new colleges add football teams this year in the NAIA – the WARNER UNIVERSITY ROYALS, the REINHARDT UNIVERSITY EAGLES and the OKLAHOMA BAPTIST UNIVERSITY BISON (technically relaunching football after stopping it in 1940).

NAIA FOOTBALL OPENING NIGHT RESULTS

Well, the first night of NAIA football is in the books. Division 3 gets going next week for those of you wondering. Let’s recap last night’s action:

ST XAVIER COUGARS 49 over Bethel (TN) Wildcats 32. In a game that was tight until the 4th quarter, Cougars QB Anthony “Crop-Man” Kropp had a great game but Mike Maher set an SXU record for completion yards and TD receptions!

BEMIDJI STATE BEAVERS  24 over Minot State Beavers 7. Minot State got bashed in the 12th Annual Beaver Bash, but they were up against a D2 team in Bemidji State. For newbies to lower division sports just as 1A football teams schedule 1AA teams (I feel like such a rebel for continuing to say 1A and 1AA) it goes all the way down. 1AA teams often schedule Div 2 teams for their opening game and D2 teams often schedule D3 or NAIA teams for theirs.

DICKINSON STATE BLUE HAWKS 25  over Rocky Mountain Battlin’ Bears 21In what was the closest final score of the night the Blue Hawks defense kept the Battlin’ Bears from scoring long enough for a Holland to Herr screen pass to put Dickinson State ahead for good.

CONCORD MOUNTAIN LIONS 72  over Southern Virginia Knights 21. Okay, I know Concord is D2 but still, for SVU this is the ultimate “just burn the game tape and move on” situation. I’m sure the Knights faithful would like as little said about this game as possible so let’s just move on ourselves.
