Are You Ready for Some Football?


Summer is coming to an end, but you know what that means. It's time for football! The high school season is already under way. College football "kicks off" this weekend and the NFL season opens on September 4. Here is a short list of college games you may want to catch:

  • Alabama vs. Clemson

  • Alabama A&M vs. Tennessee State

  • Alabama State vs. Florida A&M

  • Auburn vs. Louisiana-Monroe

  • Birmingham Southern vs. Campbell

  • Jacksonville State vs. Georgia Tech (8/28)

  • Miles vs. Stillman (8/31)

  • Samford vs. West Georgia (8/28)

  • Troy vs. Middle Tennessee (8/28)

  • UAB vs. Tulsa

SEC teams have won the national championship for two straight years with both LSU and Florida beating Ohio State in the national championship game. In the NFL, two SEC quarterbacks have led their teams to victory in the last two Super Bowls. Eli Manning (Ole Miss) led his New York Giants team to victory in Super Bowl XLII and his brother Peyton (Tennessee) led the Indianapolis Colts, coached by Tony Dungy, to victory in Super Bowl XLI. Which teams will come out on top this season? To keep track of schedules, results, and team information, or simply find a good book about football, be sure to take a look at the links on the Football subject guide. Enjoy the season.

I love living in a city where the public library blogs about football season. I also love the public library in general!
