Davis, Ok 2015.jpg

My Sabbath is grounded in a deep faith with the good Lord, but I believe He allows me a free pass (or the NFL Network’s GamePass, if you will) on this day.
I am, and have been, a fan of the NFL since I was knee-high to a blocking sled.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn.—Middle Tennessee scored 31 points in the second-half while Louisiana Tech failed to complete a last-minute comeback of its own as the Blue Raiders defeated the Bulldogs 38-34 Saturday night at Floyd Stadium.
In the Conference USA opener for both teams, Louisiana Tech led 34-31 with under four minutes left in the game thanks to Kam McKnight’s 1-yard touchdown rush, but Middle Tennessee used a five-play, 75-yard scoring drive that ended with a 23-yard touchdown pass from Brent Stockstill to Ty Lee to put the Blue Raiders ahead, 38-34.

GRAMBLING — Success can be the sweetest revenge.
In a rematch of last year’s Southwestern Athletic Conference Championship Game, Grambling State knew it would be in for a challenge against Alcorn State, which won last year’s title contest 49-21.
