Weekend Football Wrap-up

Time to recap another weekend of football for my European friends following teams of interest.

Pioneer Valley vs. Cabrillo, in white

Friday night Riccardo Conticello's Cabrillo team (1-5) lost to Pioneer Valley 13-42.

Saturday's College Results of Interest to Catania

Arizona State 24 - Washington (3-4) 17, the Dawgs are killing me after giving up the winning 50 yard TD pass with 5 seconds left in the game.

Arizona (4-2) 43 - Stanford 38, Jason's 'Cats bounce back in a game as wacky as the score would indicate.

Willamette (6-1) 35 - Pacific Lutheran 17, Brandon's team continues to a methodical march towards the NCAA Division III playoffs.

Hardin-Simmons (3-4) 38 - Howard Payne 31, Matt's Cowboys are starting to get their act together after a shaky start to the '09 season.

Drake 21 - San Diego (3-3) 14, Taber's Toreros continue to alternate wins and losses each week.

Fort Hays State 31 - Nebraska, Omaha (5-3) 20, this was the first time that Larry's Mavs have lost to Fort Hays State since 1959. That's 50 years if my math is correct. . . OUCH!

Wittenberg 10 - Wabash (5-1) 7, Denver's Little Giants lost their first game on a Field Goal with 1 second left in the contest.


New Orleans (5-0) 48 - New York Giants 27, the Giants were 5-0 coming into the game and were pretty much handled by the Saints. On a bad note, LB Scott Fujita left the game early in the 1st quarter with a pulled calf muscle and did not return to action. The Saints are now one of only four NFL teams without a loss this season, the others are Denver (5-0), Indianapolis (5-0) and Minnesota (6-0).

Swedish Updates

Time to get our Hässleholm Hurricanes up to speed on the results of our two favorite college teams this weekend.


University of Miami (5-1) 27 - Central Florida 7, the Miami Hurricanes have been a real surprise this year.

Boise State 28 - Tulsa (4-2) 21, the Golden Hurricanes suffered a tough loss to the 6-0, 5th ranked Broncos.
