    It seems a lot of the smaller colleges in the state of florida had a good year or 3 in the past ten years or so. There are a lot of athletes to choose from in the state of florida who didn't have the grades to play at FSU, UF or Miami so the went to FIU, University of South Florida and a couple other schools and had great teams. I am not sure why they no longer have teams like that but guess the NCAA possibly looked into why they were so good or them moving into better conferences with more restrictions mad it tougher.

    I don't remember FSU playing FIU but know that Jacksonville State nearly upset FSU a few years back.

    Maybe it wasn't FSU but another decent ACC team that played FIU and it was close.

    Virginia Tech vs University of @Manydogs (i.e. Tennessee) 9/10/2016 at 2000 hours. Line Tenn -11. Weather forecast is dark, continued dark until widely scattered light in the morning. No but really should be Temperature around 85 degrees at 1900 hours sun will set approximately 1942 hours. Temperature 82 degrees and game time wins 3 mph from the southwest. Turning partly cloudy 2100 hours temperatures falling to mid 70's during the game. 0% probability of rain. Based on this, I envy you because that sounds like ideal conditions for a game and beer drinking. Take some pictures because this event will make history with approximately 150,000 fans. This ought to be a good game, "The Battle At Bristol!" One pundit said that both of the teams won their season openers but neither looked impressive. Tenn needed a come from behind effort to beat Appalachian State and VT beat Liberty 36-13 but had lost 4 fumbles in the process.---Yahoo Sports.

    I should be back from Cumberland, Maryland by game time. Yep...taking the kids to see grandma and grandpa.
    @Manydogs lives around 4 hours west of me and the battle of Bristol is east of where I live. If anyone on this forum ever wanted to go to a game and I didn't have to work and it was within a reasonable distance I would go. I am in Kingsport Tn and I think she is around Nashville

    I start back to work monday and have no idea what my schedule will be like now and I am sure it will change frequently because I do industrial construction. Luckily the plant I will be working at is 10 minutes from my house.

    In 2011 FIU went 8-4. They beat Louisville and barely lost to Duke. Ty Hilton was there then and could possibly be the best player to play there.

    Back to your mention of beer at the Battle of Bristol. I was talking to my neighbor who works for Bristol Motor Speedway and she mentioned that they bought 500k beers to sale at the game.

    Thanks. You were right did not have much to worry about. I did manage to watch some of the Michigan UCF game as the Terps play UCF next Saturday. I think we should win; however, it is definitely a test for the Terps and will set the tone for the rest of the year.

    While we were in Cumberland I tried to catch a glimpse of the Penn State game. Man it was close. What the heck happened. Based on the score it must of been a good game.

    My Noles got another win of 52-8 vs Charleston Southern and I missed most the game since I was sitting in traffic on my way to the battle of bristol

    There were 156,990 people at the Battle of Bristol and Tennessee won 45-24. We arrived at the game 5 hours early and that was after sitting in traffic for over two hours to get parked and spent another hour in traffic leaving. The game was great and there probably won't be a bigger crowd at another football game for a while unless they play these two teams play again at Bristol Motor Speedway. The crowd bought all 550,000 beers the BMS bought for the game by half time and Budweiser had to deliver more. LOL

    Here are some pics and I am headed to bed after posting them!!

    Sorry this pic looks warped but I took it in panoramic mode and the fence was in the way. I didn't look at it until I was at home or I would of taken another picture

    @Chunky White-- what a great game and experience you were at! I LOVED what was done during the national anthem-- beautiful!
