The Oak Park Huskies came to play saturday in Elmhurst College, as they beat the Grant Bulldogs 19-0
Maybe too many AFC voters have been welcomed to L.A. by a one-fingered wave out a car window. No surprise, the traffic-laden city ranks last for being pedestrian-friendly, which probably cuts down on your chances to break the ice with locals, which scored a red-carpet-ready No. 4. Hey L.A. if it makes you feel better NYC came in second, a close second……LOL, Chicago was in the top 15………. have a good weekend America.
The L.S.U. decal beat U.S.C is from back in 1979, when U.S.C. was no.1 in the nation, and they came to Tiger Stadium to play LSU ranked no.20 at the time. I was at the game as a boy scout helping people find there seats, I watch the game for free. The game had the great Charles White in the game, and LSU actually had the lead in the 4th quarter 12 to 10 with 10 minutes left in the game, U.S.C. was driving and the L.S.U. defense was keeping them from driving down the field, L.S.U. was penalized with a Pass interference that kept the drive alive. U.S.C. scored with 37 seconds remaining in the game with a final score 17-12, what amazing game that was. To witness a game like that at the age of 14 was excellent College Football for a teenager to experience. Perhaps we can get the 2 schools together again and have a good competetive game.
NIU vs Wisconsin game, what a game it was in the 1st quarter, the Badgers had the first score of the game, to make it 7-0, but NIU came back to score on their next drive to tie it up 7-7 on a right sweep from the 3 yrd line. NIU actually did a squid kick on the kickoff, caught some Badgers football players off guard, and NIU almost recovered the kickoff, but two of the NIU players actually collided, loosing the football to a badger football player. Wisconsin went on to move the ball down the field 14-7, was the score after the drive as wilson connected in the endzone Nick Toon. Then the Badgers had 3 straight drives down the field, each ending in runs by Ball, 1 yrd run, White 20yrd run, and White with another one yrd run, and the score was 28-7 halftime. I was sitting in the 202 section good seats, but the sun was beating down on me, so I went to get a soda pop before start of the second half. As NIU kickoff the Badgers picked up where they left off 1 yrd plunge by Ball, then a 9 yrd pass from Wilson to Petersen, and Brennan caption the game with a 6 yrd run, and the score speaks for itself 49- 7 Badgers over NIU.
