Good Year In Division III Football

Well, how about that!

Not only did Hampden-Sydney College complete a perfect season to capture the Old Dominion Athletic Conference crown, with a 34-27 victory over arch-rival Randolph-Macon College, but my mother's alma mater, Susquehanna University, also made the playoffs!

Next week, Hampden-Sydney hosts its first playoff game since 1977, when the Tigers meet the Blue Jays of Johns Hopkins University. The two teams last met in the 2007 opener, at Hampden-Sydney, when the Blue Jays prevailed in a nail-biter by a score of 17-16 on a blocked field goal on the final play of the game. That year marked H-SC's last appearance in the playoffs, when they lost in the first round at Wesley College.

Noon. Saturday. Death Valley. The Youngs will be there to cheer on the Tigers!
