Late in the fall it's a small list of games but an important one.
NCR will decide its finalists in Men's D1 and Men's D1AA. The semifinals in Small College and D2 will be held the same weekend as their finals, and the D1/D1AA finals, Dec 9-11 in Houston. They will also have two bowl games with Notre Dame vs Boise State and Southern Nazarene vs Sam Houston State.
The Hornets Nest Bowl Game at the CRAA Fall Classic pits two longtime rivals against each other in Ohio State and Penn State.
It's a good rivalry not consummated much in recent years but with plenty of history.
Because we have the NCR playoffs coming up and a couple of bowl games, our December DIAA-only rankings for the fall will happen twice.
We have the rankings on this, the first day of December, and we'll hit it all again after NCR's Weekend O' Champions in Houston. Also factored in would be Kentucky's bowl game vs Colorado State this coming weekend.
The concept of the Bowl Game continues to have legs and it's the attraction of playing unfamiliar opposition that makes it special.
This coming weekend at the CRAA Fall Classic there will be two Bowl Games, with Kentucky facing Colorado State in the Mint City Bowl in one of them.
