Fall Semester Belt Updates

OK, class. Pop open your Trapper Keepers and get out your fuzzy troll-topped pencils (hey, I'm a child of the 80's). Classes are in session around the nation and some more updates are needed.

--The 2007 BracketBusters home and road teams are all set. No Sun Belt teams are participating this year. It will be interesting to see if this is a good move or a bad move for the Belt.

--The Denver Pioneers recently released their schedule. The open at Colorado on Nov 10 and will also make a trip to Stanford on Nov 25. Terry Carroll's bunch has 5 home non-conference games and 5 roadies.

--Arkansas-Little Rock also has their schedule ready to go. They have big tests at Texas A&M and at Minnesota. The Trojans are also playing in the CBE Classic (formerly known as the Guardians Classic). UALR will be in Lubbock, Texas, for the first round. Their opponent has yet to be determined.

--South Alabama has three SEC teams on the docket: at Auburn, at Mississippi State, and the Jags host Ole Miss. The also play in the Fresno State Classic.

45 days until practice begins. Until then, enjoy the pigskin appetizers.
