My vote for the FCS Top 25 for the week ending 11/4/2013 follows below the flip.
But first, check out this great picture from the crazy Delaware/Towson game this weekend, courtesy of Towson Athletics.
Three times, Towson had a chance to put away Delaware up by 2 touchdowns. Three times, the Tigers didn’t convert.
With 4 minutes, 19 seconds left in the third quarter, Towson (8-2 overall and 4-2 in the Colonial Athletic Association) had a chance to pad a 28-10 advantage, but senior PK Drew Evangelista’s field-goal attempt from 33 yards banged off the left upright.
On the ensuing possession, Tigers LB Monte Gaddis put enough pressure on Blue Hens senior QB Trevor Sasek to incite him to float a deep pass that junior CB Tye Smith intercepted at Towson’s 26-yard line. Smith wove his way 74 yards into the end zone, but the Tigers were flagged for clipping, which nullified the touchdown with 2:27 remaining.
And on Delaware’s penultimate series of the contest, Sasek severely underthrew junior WR Michael Johnson on second down-and-2 at Towson’s 16, but Smith dropped a sure interception that would have led to the Tigers cementing a 31-17 lead.
Instead, Delaware would rally from 22 points down in the fourth quarter to escape Johnny Unitas stadium with a 32-31 victory, stunning the Towson crowd. You could say everything about this win for Delaware was Lehigh-esque: from the amazing second half comeback from three scores down to the stunned silence from Johnny Unitas stadium, the same one that Lehigh delivered in 2011 in their 40-38 playoff victory.

But first, check out this great picture from James Madison of QB Michael Birdsong as he’s crossing the goal line against Richmond last week (Photo Credit: Joe Mahoney/The Richmond Times-Dispatch)
The sad thing is, this picture was a great one – but Birdsong’s ostrich-like touchdown pose would not count for any points, since it would be called back for holding.
James Madsion would go into halftime with a 7-6 lead, but both teams would erupt in the second half, ending in a 38-31 marathon. Dukes KR Dejor Simmons would take the second-half kickoff for a 100 yard touchdown run, and James Madison wouldn’t trail by any more than 5 after that point.

Last week, I was so busy hyping up Lehigh/Fordham that I forget to post my weekly viewing guide.
As a result, Lehigh lost.
This is reason enough for my viewing guide to make a comeback.

More and more, college football is becoming more of a lifestyle than a diversion.
The experiences are more immersive; college football days don’t just take place on one day a week, it’s a three, or sometimes four, day weekend. It involves tailgates. Parties. Maybe a night out.
Most importantly, there are games on TV – or, now, the internet – all the time. There are literally hundreds of matchups available to watch, or stream, every day of the Experience Weekend. Whether you watch it a home, your butt firmly on the couch, or out with friends, it’s becoming an all-encompassing affair.
Who will cut through all the channels showing Godspell, or Robinson Crusoe, and point you to where the Week 1 Experience Weekend games are being broadcast?
More to the point, where’s a Lehigh football fan – old or new – to start?
The answer is – of course – you come here. You’ve come to the right place.
Starting on Thursday, there are plenty of football games available to enjoy that involve scouting future Lehigh opponents, interesting Top 25 matchups, or simply good weekend football games. And below the flip, you’ll be able to get all the information you need. Bookmark this post, and you won’t need to go anywhere else.
