Episode 96 is ready to rock!

Sam, Jason, and Donald recap the wins against Indiana and South Dakota. Jason is on husband duty so he's here for part 1 and Donald joins for part 2. We end with previews of St. Francis and Boston College, hand out Player of the Week honors, and end with a little Duke Football bowling!
