It was a wild and crazy week in the world of sports, but I believe that just from the sheer quantity of posts on the site, a lot of the attention was on the gridiron. Between the final week of the preseason for the Browns, the roster deadline, the Buckeyes season opener and some fun in the college football world, it was an awesome week to be a football fan. I know we have yet to recap the Buckeyes game officially, but this post serves to recap what just happened entirely in football during this past week to see where we are today.
Around the state at the collegiate level, we first had Kent State and Bowling Green each securing relatively easy first victories against simple opponents on Thursday night. The Buckeyes then survived against the pesky Naval Academy yesterday by the final score of 31-27 while the MAC had a rough day as Akron got blown-out by Penn State, Purdue routed Toledo and Ohio lost to Connecticut. Overall, it was a pretty cool first full day of the college football season yesterday with all of the top 25 games along with Sam Bradford’s injury against BYU, and there were no exceptions in Ohio as well.
