    2-17th September. We can't, between where we'll be on any given day plus the fact that games are on Sundays, means there's not going to be a game near us college football doesn't seem to be happening then either.

    Actually there are games on Thursdays and Mondays aswell. Usually 1 on Thursday midweek football and a Monday night football game.
    College football starts in August so there will be games too they just need time to finalize the schedules and stuff but all the info will be out later on. Don't worry there should be something there for you if you want to ask more go ahead.

    Well you'd realize if there weren't pads the sport would be banned due to how many deaths there would be.

    Thanks for your help, we've found a couple of college games we could go to - Golden Bears/Portland State Vikings or USC Trojans/Washington State Cougars, both on the same day in LA. Any recommendations as to which?

    USC Trojans Washington. USC are definitely the bigger college team a real famous team. Wait a little bit maybe May when the NFL schedule comes out and you can see what the Monday night and Thursday night game is. If your there for 2 weeks you got 8 possible teams it could be

    No offense, but are you sure the Cal Bears game against Portland State is in LA? The Golden Bears are the team of the University of California at Berkeley, and Berkeley is up the coast, right by S.F. and not all that near to LA at all. Then again, the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA), should play a game at that time

    Patriots sign Tommy Kelly 2 year contract. Now this i really like. Perfect guy to pair up with Wilfork. No more DT in the draft. Lets get Abraham and another receiver and I'l have liked this FA.

    Ahhh thanks! Thing is we're in NYC 2-morning of the 5th, LA 5-morning of the 8th, Vegas 8th-11th and San Fransisco 12th-15th, so our schedule is quite tight! We're going to see the Yankees play (I know, I know) in New York though!

    so how will a college game differ from an NFL game? Besides the obvious crowd size/game quality etc.

    It's quite similar really. There's just more mistakes, so usually a higher score. There will be more stand-out players as well, as the gulf in class between best college players (practically NFL quality) and the worst college players (play for fun between classes) is huge.

    Also, a player is down whenever they hit the floor, regardless of if an opponent touched them or not. You're not down by contact you're just down.

    A lot more gimicks and gun kind of plays too. More rolling out and flinging crazy deep passes.

    Both in basketball and football, I found college game to be significantly more fun than their pro counterpart (not to be generalizing or anything, I don't think that this always holds true) You'll have a great time, the LA Coliseum is a fantastic field too.
