The Original: College football proves most exciting to watch
Now that summer has passed, sports fans have a wide array of exciting games from which to choose.
Over the last few months, the only major sport worth paying attention to was baseball. Not exactly thrilling when you are in the middle of an excruciatingly long 162-game season, long before the real excitement begins.
In true sports fans’ eyes there is one sport that deserves the most attention: college football.
This baseball season has been interesting, but the real moments that everyone is waiting for are the pennant races, which won’t arrive until next month.
The lackluster NFL preseason is nothing to look forward to in my eyes, consisting of a bunch of games that often feature reserve players and that ultimately don’t count.
With so many important match ups and unpredictable upsets (such as Appalachian State’s shocking victory over Michigan on Sept. 1), sports fans won’t want to miss out on the second weekend of college football.
This Saturday fans spent hours in front of their televisions watching the large amounts of college games. There were many games to talk about, but one match up stood out among the rest – LSU and Virginia Tech.
Before the game, VT coach Frank Beamer said his team would have to play better than they did in week one where they played against East Carolina.
Unfortunately for the Hokies, they got worse, and were destroyed by LSU, 48-7. The Tigers proved why they are No. 2 in the Associated Press Poll. Beamer’s 200th career win will have to wait for some other time.
And in another category are the close games, which are almost as exciting as the actual upsets. No. 7 Texas escaped Saturday with a win over No. 19 Texas Christian University.
Week 2 had many highlights, and Week 3 will also feature some games that many eyes will be focused on, such as bitter rivals No. 24 Tennessee and No. 4 Florida squaring off in Gainesville on Saturday. This looks like it will be the most exciting game for Week 3. But who knows, as these first couple of weeks have proven, there are so many upsets and unlikely results waiting to happen.
