KS/Ohio was a bit one way traffic Bobby, however - Toledo/CMU and BGSU/WM are both worth a watch!
I watched KS/Ohio last night, I actually really enjoyed it tho KS were shockingly poor. I quite liked the small close ground and low key atmosphere. l think I may have developed a soft spot for Ohio
I have the choice of the Toledo, Bowling Green or Northern Illinois to watch this afternoon/tonight.

Ah nice one. Actually thats one bar Iv never ever been to in Town even though I only live 5 mins drive away and drive pass it most weeks. Maybe I'll pop in for the next Ravanelli rave karaoke !

All decent games those Bobby, reasonably close affairs and some good football played in each of the 1st two. I haven't watched N Ill/Buff myself yet.

I watched Bowling Green @ Kent State a few weeks back, 48-0 Bowling Green. Bowling Green have a high powered offence, but Kent State were poor. Kent State have produced a few players over the years too - Jack Lambert, James Harrison, Josh Cribbs, Usama Young, Julian Edelman, and Antonio Gates (though he never played Football, he played Basketball). Lou Holtz and Nick Saban have played/coached there too.

Yeah they didnt really look like scoring against Ohio either. Got the 2nd half of Toledo game to watch & then I'll watch the Bowling Green game from last night.

Is that Edelman from the Patriots ?

As some of you have helped others I'm here asking as well!

I'm a Raiders fan originally from Leeds but want to try get into the college game a bit more. I realise it's the end of the season but can catch a game and then learn about the team a bit more.

I'd prefer an Eastern team (only bad thing about the Raiders is the late kickoffs!) and probably a small-ish school. Wouldn't mind a team that is a "punches above their weight" sort of team!

Have a look at the ACC (Atlantic Coast Conference).

Its a division full of teams with a great history who had fallen on hard times and relatively speaking young colleges at A1 level who are making a name for themselves. Also they are all based on the East so reasonable K/O times.

Maybe a Big Ten West team like Wisconsin or Nebraska (they were a powerhouse but have fell off a bit in recent years) decent teams and one of them is going to get to championship game most years to play the "heavyweights" Sparty, Michigan and Ohio State. Or if you want punching above their weight how about Iowa although it's quite likely this season won't be repeated for a few years.

To add to previous suggestions I'd recommend a team from the top half of the American Athletic Conference. Not in the power five conferences but making their presence felt despite being smaller and less powerful in recruiting circles.

Thanks for the suggestion guys. I'm very grateful!

It's gonna be Duke I think. They seem to completely fill the "up and coming team" requirement. They don't have that many big names in the NFL and don't really get many players picked, at least until the last couple of years so I'm going to roll with them I think.

Thanks for the help again!
