Two Norfolk universities – Old Dominion and Norfolk State – will face off Saturday in a first-round game of the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs. The game will kickoff at 1:30pm at Foreman Field, on the campus of ODU.
I wish I could say that the two teams were cross-city rivals but they aren’t. This will be the first time they have played each other. ODU just restarted its football program three years ago – after a very long hiatus – and the two schools have inked a deal to play each other starting in 2013.
No surprise as to who I’ll be rooting for Saturday: my alma mater.
Go Big Blue!
