Slept in. Rode my bike around campus, which was very quiet. I watched the Minnesota at Nebraska game, which was the only early game that sounded promising. It was a good one, too.
If only I’d known about that Wake Forest-Virginia Tech game, though, right?
Got out to the tailgate in time for a late lunch. Visited with friends and then we all made our way in to see the game. It got off to a slow start, but briefly gave us an amazing stat:
As the second half began I realized that one of our Samford students was sitting behind me:
I’ve had him in class and he worked for me for two years and now there is right behind me in a stadium. What are the odds? 1:87,450.
Auburn won, of course, but Samford looked good and fought hard throughout. This is the second time I’ve been fortunate enough to see them play one another in football. It doesn’t happen all of the time, of course, but it is a special treat to see.
