06 Sep Week 1 of College Football 2011
Week 1 of college football proved to be an interesting one with a few upsets, as expected. #14 TCU fell to Baylor 50-48 and South Florida upset #16 Notre Dane 23-20. While I really wouldn’t call it an upset, but #4 LSU took down #3 Oregon. Those SEC teams are tough as usual and the conference is very strong this year with 6 teams still in the AP Top 25 after the first full week of football. My Mississippi State Bulldogs look promising routing Memphis 59-14 and are now ranked #16.
With Tropical Storm Lee coming through the Southeast this weekend, Saturday was a great day to kick back and watch some College football games. While watching, I saw many different spirit items including thundersticks and mini footballs.
These school spirit items are not only great for college teams, but also for high school and middle school football teams. They make great fundraisers to help raise money for new uniforms, equipment, and field maintenance.
