ATN Podcast 349: We’re here for Stagg Bowl 50

It’s great to be back in Salem covering a Stagg Bowl, and Patrick and Greg and Frank Rossi are here to preview Stagg Bowl with North Central and Cortland.

For North Central, it’s the fourth time in a row they’ve been to a Stagg Bowl, and in four different places, so how does their experience stack up? For Cortland, it’s the first Stagg Bowl, but does their experience playing the Cortaca Jug game in Yankee Stadium help this group prepare?

From Cortland, we talk with coach Curt Fitzpatrick, quarterback Zac Boyes, linebacker John Whiney and wide receiver Cole Burgess. And from the North Central side, we chat with coach Brad Spencer, quarterback Luke Lehnen, left tackle Jeske Maples, safety Julian Bell and wide receiver DeAngelo Hardy.

Will the Stagg Bowl return to Salem at some point after this? We discuss. Plus, we generally expect a high-scoring game, but how high? Over or under 94.5 points? Who will be the most prolific quarterback-to-receiver combo?

More over-unders, listener questions, and the rest in our Stagg Bowl preview podcast.
