It is not uncommon, especially when you school mascot is a Falcon, to have the a falcon symbolically flyover a stadium during important sporting games. That’s what was originally planed during the Air Force Georgia Tech Independence Bowl, only the falcon was released, but he didn’t come back! A spokesman for the Air Force said, “It’s not atypical for the birds to lose concentration or panic and fly away. They rely on trainers for food, so they usually come back.” While the flyover didn’t turn out as planned, Air Force won the Independence Bowl 14-7.

Ponder claimed the starting job for the Vikings, while Steele was crowned ESPN’s new darling with the departure of Erin Andrews. The couple met on the College Game Day set. When asked about the relationship, Ponder said: “The cool thing is that obviously, we’re both at the same time, so we don’t get to see each other that much. But at least one person isn’t feeling guilty about not making the effort to do it or whatever. Then we kind of have the same schedule in the off season, so that’ll be good.” Share It
