Maybe they should move the ACC/Big 10 challenge or take the double header …

New School Meets Old School in Super Bowl 50

When you look at this year’s Super Bowl 50 competitors, they could be considered polar opposites. On one team, there’s “The Sheriff” Peyton Manning, who is coming to the end of a great legacy. Then on the other team, you’ve got Cam Newton, young, highly polarizing, highly scrutinized, but flat out fun. Cam Newton is …
