After two months of anticipation, it’s finally game time for Bloomsburg and Shippensburg as the CBS Sports Network Division II Game of the Week visits Pennsylvania for the first time since September, 2011. Bloomsburg remains undefeated at 8-0 while Shippensburg brings a 5-3 overall record into the contest.

Does anyone else have chapped lips and tingling ears from “wind burn?” It was an interesting weather day around the state and wind played a factor in most games. Here are my headlines and reactions from week 8 in the PSAC.
