Flyers and Buckeyes and Bengals! Oh My!

Monday, November 16th, 2009

 It was a great weekend for my favorite teams that I follow. 

The #21/22 Dayton Flyers tipped off the season at home in a high scoring contest beating the Creighton Blue Jays 90-80 on Saturday afternoon.  One can conclude from the game that Chris Johnson is a basketball stud (18 pts and 15 rebounds) and we can expect to see big things from him this year. 

Later in the day, the Ohio State Buckeyes beat Iowa 27-24 at home in an overtime thriller.  The win for the Buckeyes clinched a fifth straight Big 10 football title and a trip back to Pasadena to play in the Rose Bowl for the first time in thirteen years. 

On Sunday, the Cincinnati Bengals beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 18-12 to give them sole possesion of first place in the division and an undefeated record against division opponents.  The Bengals improved their record to 7-2 and we can keep our hopes up for the playoffs and a shot at playing in the Super Bowl. 

In summary, it was an exciting and victorious weekend for the Flyers, Buckeyes and Bengals.
