The Week Ahead: Women Founders, Code IT, MongoDB
Even though Sam Houston State traveled to Eastern Washington over the weekend for a little 1-AA action, and Arkansas Baptist College opened its juco season at War Memorial with a 45-14 win over Georgia Prep Academy, college football "officially" debuts this week.
Can I get an amen? God's sport commences, and God's team opens in south Alabama against the Plainsmen Saturday at 3.
