Game Day: It takes courage

We’ve got three Top 25 battles during the day and an intriguing rivalry game at night here as Week 3 of the 2010 Division III football season dawns.

Tonight will be particularly interesting in that we’ll get our first real look at what St. John Fisher is made of. The Cardinals have blown out their first two opponents, teams that finished in the lower half of the NJAC last season. Tonight they play Rochester, which, while not having made the playoffs, has still provided a challenge to its local rival. Here’s Keith McMillan’s take on last year’s Courage Bowl between the two.

The Wheaton/UW-Platteville game also looks interesting under the lights tonight, as do many of our afternoon games, such as Trine at UW-River Falls, St. John’s hosting Concordia-Moorhead and Pomona-Pitzer/Lewis and Clark, which I covered last year and was an entertaining game,

And, of course, there are three games between ranked teams, with Wesley hosting Delaware Valley, Mississippi College at Hardin-Simmons and Ohio Northern at Otterbein.

Where are you and what are you seeing today?
