Top Weekend Events 09/16 – 09/18

Welcome to your Wednesday top weekend events post!  This list is absolutely dominated by college football games.  A couple other things snuck in there, but for the most part, NCAA Football games are what’s drawing the fan’s eye these days.

The top event for this weekend, however, is not football, but the Austin City Limits Festival.  The Austin City Limits originally started as a live celebration of Texas music recorded American Public television music program by the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS).   It later evolved into the Austin City Limits Music Festival featuring regional, national and international artists with a wide range of musical styles including jazz, alt. rock, alt. country, folk and jam band.  The ACL Festival is an annual three-day festival with over 130 acts!  Over 70,000 fans attend each day.   Some of the big names for this year include Coldplay, Sara Bareilles, Cold War Kids, Foster the People, Kanye West,  Young the Giant, Stevie Wonder, My Morning Jacket, Alison Krauss, Social Distortion, Randy Newman, Airborne Toxic Event and Arcade Fire.  Not a bad line-up!

The Red Sox also make another appearance after a long absence.  They’ll be taking on the Tampa Bay Rays.  The Red Sox are expected to with the AL Wild Card this year.

Outside of that, it’s football, football, football!  The top NCAA Football game is the Florida State Seminoles versus the Oklahoma Sooners.  These two teams are two of the most talked about and followed programs in the history of the game.  This will be their first face-off in nearly a decade.  This game could send FSU back into the national spot light it so famously controlled or it could prove the Landry Jones was just what Oklahoma needed to send them to the National Championship.   While Oklahoma seemed to struggle a bit with their first game win against Utah State, FSU easily dominated Samford with a 59-6 win, a nice feat for Coach Jimbo Fisher’s debut.  This should be a very exciting game!
