Comcast will be carrying the game live from Byrd Stadium in College Park, Md., and you can purchase the game from Troy-Crenshaw Cablevision for the modest price of $24.95. Yes, you can watch it in the comfort of your own living room starting at 11:50 central standard time.

I’m excited about this football game.

It’s our Trojans against the once beaten Maryland Terrapins.

Maryland, of course, is the Cinderella team of the Atlantic Coast Conference this season and is currently tied with North Carolina and Florida State for the conference lead.

Ralph Friedgen, the Terrapins new head coach, will have to be considered when National Coach of the Year honors are given out.

Maryland’s enrollment is 33,000 students, more then twice the population of the City of Troy, and is located just 20 minutes from the nation’s capitol.

It’s going to be a great time for the 400 or so Trojan faithful that’s making the trip.

I plan to see some of the sites while I’m there, but my mind will definitely be focused on the game.

Can Troy State pull off another major upset in college football? My feeling is that the game will go down to the wire.

Maryland 24, Troy State 21.

In Tuscaloosa, things better get turned around in a hurry if the Crimson Tide’s going to make it to a bowl game this season.

LSU plays well in Tuscaloosa, while Alabama plays well in Baton Rouge.

A week off should help Alabama, but Rohan Davey will riddle the Tide secondary like everyone else has this season.

LSU 28, Alabama 17.

Other games on Saturday:

Penn State 23, Southern Miss 20; Florida State 31, Clemson 21; Tennessee 24, Notre Dame 14; Florida 51, Vanderbilt 17; Michigan 28, Michigan State 24; Ole Miss 42, Arkansas 17.

In local high school football, Charles Henderson of Troy invades Camden to play Wilcox-Central, the No. 2 team in the state.

CHHS has the fire power and the defense to give the Jags all they want. This game is for the Region 2 championship.

I’ve got a real good feeling about this one!

CHHS 24, Wilcox-Central 21!

The Trojans are region champs!

The Eagles of Coach Joe Thornton are playing like gangbusters right now as well.

Goshen 45, Pleasant Home 7.

Hope you all have a great football weekend!
