The Eastern Michigan Eagles football team opened their season on Saturday and wanted to make a big entrance in front of their home fans by sledgehammering a brick wall during pregame introductions. Unfortunately, it was a failed effort. Apparently, the organizers of this entrance did not take into account that brick walls are actually pretty tough to knock down.
Rejoice football fans! Real, actual games that count towards something are finally starting. Tonight, the college football season will begin with a full slate of games, including a big game between No. 21 Texas A&M and No. 9 South Carolina. This season will be full of great games with fans everywhere heading through the turnstiles to check the game out in person. I decided to take a look at which games have been the top selling at TicketNetwork.com, and needless to say, our Top 10 games are full of incredible matchups:
1. Advocare Texas Kickoff: LSU Tigers vs. Wisconsin Badgers
The top-selling game on our list pits two of the top 25 teams against each other at NRG Stadium this Saturday, August 30. Not a huge surprise to see this game at the top of the heap, LSU fans are known as one of the best traveling fan bases in college football, and Houston is only a four hour drive from the LSU campus.
2. Cowboys Classic: Florida State Seminoles vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys
Wherever Florida State goes this season will be a big deal, and their season opener at AT&T Stadium in Dallas against the Oklahoma State Sooners is the biggest. Just like LSU in our top-ranked game, OSU has a rabid fan base and will be out in full-force to see if their Cowboys can take down the top-ranked Seminoles.
3. Chick-fil-A College Kickoff: Alabama Crimson Tide vs. West Virginia Mountaineers
Once again, the Alabama Crimson Tide are among the favorites to win the National Championship come January. Their journey starts at the Georgia Dome this Saturday against the West Virginia Mountaineers.
Thanks to the addition of hometown hero LeBron James, as well as the soon-to-be addition of Kevin Love, Cleveland Cavaliers fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of the 2014-15 NBA Schedule. After weeks of anticipation, the schedule was finally released last night which revealed the full 82 game schedule for the Cavs. If you are a fan of LeBron, the Cavs or just the NBA in general, here are the top five games you should be watching:
vs. New York Knicks
Date/Time: October 30, 2014 at 8 p.m.
The home opener. The game all of Cleveland (and probably the entire state of Ohio) has been dreaming about since LeBron announced he was coming home. It will be the first real game for the new-look Cavaliers which feature not only James, but also Kevin Love, who will be playing his first real minutes for the home team.
