College Football Today
Team doctor Pat Smith said the 88-degree temperature coupled with dehydration might have played a role in the seizure.
A day before the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, numerous schools held patriotic ceremonies as fans gathered in the tens of thousands to enjoy a busy day of college football.
The United States Military Academy paid tribute to the victims and heroes of the attacks during halftime of its game against San Diego State. Army cadets passed out American flags to fans before the game, and first responders were among those honored during halftime on “Salute the Heroes Day” at Michie Stadium.
At Washington, Huskies players wore special white helmets with the colors of the American flag within the “W” in their game against Hawaii and defensive lineman Sione Potoa'e led the team onto the field carrying an American flag.
In Ann Arbor, Mich., “God Bless America” was played as a scroll of Michigan graduates who lost their lives on 9/11 was shown on the video boards before the Notre Dame game.
Northwestern paid tribute to the 9/11 attacks by painting the big “N” at midfield and on its helmets red, white and blue instead of the usual purple-and-white color scheme. Flight crews from United and American airlines were on hand, as were members of the Evanston police and fire departments, and a large flag was unfurled on the field before a moment of silence.
Alan Moore, a 61-year-old Vietnam veteran and grandfather of five, became the oldest player ever to get in a college football game when he kicked an extra point for NAIA Faulkner in its season-opener.
Moore wore a square-toe shoe and kicked old-school style, not soccer style _ trends that were popular when he first played college football in the late `60s. He gave Faulkner a 25-0 lead early in the second half Saturday en route to a 41-19 win over Ave Maria, located in southwest Florida and playing its first game ever.
