    Drake to play exhibition game in China

    A first for the FCS... to that country. They also went to Tanzania back in 2011.

    Reason number one why I am a bandwagon fan: the Ivy League football teams are not playing at their best nationally.

    China's all-star team against a non-schollie FCS team?

    I'd watch it

    Can the Vandals play a "friendly" against Simon Fraser in British Columbia this summer? Something doesn't sound right NCAA wise.

    Is this their "spring game"?

    Princeton did a similar thing as their spring game a couple of years ago against a Japanese team.

    No, Drake had its spring game in Iowa a few weeks ago.

    Will their 90-something year old super fan who hasn't missed a game since the 1930's be making the trip?

    I believe every NCAA team is allowed to take one international trip every four years so they would not have to give up the spring game for this competition.
