The ultimate football SaturdayThis is by far and away the most important college football Saturday of the year. Not only will the SEC Championship be played this evening, and USC and UCLA will tangle in a game that will determine whether USC will play for the national championship, but the inaugural ACC Championship Game will also be played tonight.
Like most avid fans of college football, I expect that I will be flipping back and forth between the ACC Championship and the SEC Championship...especially since, as I write this, the Big 12 Championship Game is already decided. It is not even half way through the 2nd quarter, and Texas leads Colorado 35-3!
The annual Army-Navy game is also this afternoon. Of all of the important games today, that game is the most important to a whole lot of people in uniform risking their lives for our country as I write. As we watch, root, and play football today, let's also remember that we can watch football and eat fattening food today at the stadiums or in the comfort of our homes or the local pub because a U.S. Soldier, Sailor, Airman, or Marine has risked his life in order that we might enjoy our own.
