Move over SEC country, Baltimore County, new football powerhouse is coming through. Not only is Baltimore County home to the Super Bowl Champion Ravens, but two NCAA college programs as well.
The Towson University Tigers are sitting pretty at 5-0 as they head into the thick of their CAA matchups. After a playoff snub by last year’s selection committee the tigers have routed four of their opponents, including a 33-18 win over the University of Connecticut (a BCS program). The Tigers came from behind in the second half on Saturday to remain undefeated, and among the contenders for the CAA crown.
The Stevenson University Mustangs took their first loss of the season this past Saturday. This feat is especially impressive considering the program is only in its third year, playing their first competitive game in September of 2011. Stevenson is also home to the newly built, 3,500-seat Mustang Stadium.
If Saturday football is what you’re craving, it’s not necessary to drive down to College Park or Annapolis, quality games are happening every week in your own backyard. With plenty of exciting matchups still on the slate, make sure to support these two great local teams!

Looking to get in on the Sailabration action without having to deal with any of the headaches? Skip the traffic, parking, crowds and other bothers and see the Sailabration air show’s planes and pilots up-close and personal.
This Saturday and Sunday, Baltimore County joins in the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 at the Star-Spangled Aircraft Display & Festival at Martin State Airport, 701 Wilson Point Road in Essex.
From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days, visitors can have a great time and none of the stress of getting downtown at Martin State Airport! Vintage and modern aircraft will be on display, the Glenn L. Martin Maryland Aviation Museum will be open, and festival vendors will be on hand selling refreshments and memorabilia.
Throughout both afternoons, see aircraft take off and land featuring the Blue Angels. At the end of the display, the Blue Angels will even sign autographs!
Aircraft ranging from helicopters used by today’s Navy SEALS to some of the Air Force’s most advanced jets, to the planes that won World War II will be on display for all to see this weekend.
