The College Football season continues to creep closer, with week 0 games now on the horizon. Area programs were not represented particularly well in the first coaches poll ahead of the upcoming season.
Let’s be honest, we are very lucky to have such great football programs so close to us here in the Sioux Empire. Augustana, USF, USD, and South Dakota State are all within an hours drive, and it’s time to lay out the ultimate schedule this Fall for viewing (and possibly attending) the best possible game each and every week.
It's been widely noted that this is a historic season for Augustana Viking football here in Sioux Falls. Not only are the season expectations high, but it also marks the 100th season of football for the program.
Pro Football Fans worldwide are ecstatic that the NFL season officially begins on Thursday Night with the Hall of Fame game in Canton, Ohio. Following the game, on Saturday, the 2022 Hall of Fame Class will be enshrined.
Injuries this time of year for football players and fans alike are brutal. One rookie with area ties just suffered a tough injury at New York Giants training camp that will sideline him for the near future.
