Balladeer’s Blog welcomes you to my continued coverage of this second week of college football action for the 2012 season. It’s Labor Day Weekend and the NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) is holding its gridiron double feature today: the Big River Bowl. 

One game will feature the (3) Marian University Knights taking on the (11) Bethel (TN) Wildcats and the other will pit the Kansas Wesleyan College Coyotes against the (22) Cumberland University Bulldogs. Historic Dyersburg, TN is the site for this very special event.

Meanwhile, the race to reach the most wins in NAIA college football history continues between Coach Hank Biesiot of the Dickinson State Blue Hawks and Coach Kevin Donley of the St Francis (IN) Cougars. Both men are tied at 255 wins with Donley’s victory over the Texas College Steers last weekend.

After a bye last weekend Coach Mike Feminis’ boys take on the Olivet Nazarene University Tigers. All this plus college football games in NCAA Divisions 2 and 3, in the NJCAA and in the CCCAA!
