  With four boys bouncing off the walls of the Kopp household, the games never stopped. Well, maybe sometimes they stopped. "Our rule was if someone started crying we had to stop." laughed Braden Kopp, older brother of CU Buffs freshman quarterback Maddox Kopp. "We were always competitive, always outside playing sports." It should come as little surprise, then, that all four Kopp siblings have followed in the footsteps of their father, former University of Tennessee-Chattanooga tennis player Will Kopp, as scholarship Division I athletes. Braden played offensive tackle at Vanderbilt, Miller is a senior forward for the Indiana men's basketball team, and Anderson is a senior guard at Missouri-Kansas City. Maddox, meanwhile, is starting his first preseason camp in Boulder looking to move up the CU Buffs quarterback depth chart this fall.

After transferring in January from the University of Houston, the 6-foot-5, 220-pound redshirt freshman has work to do in order to catch up to incumbent starter Brendon Lewis, sophomore backup J.T. Shrout and redshirt freshman Drew Carter. Kopp said he's focused on getting better every day. "When I decided to come here I knew that I just wanted an opportunity to compete and that's what I'm doing every day, I love it." Kopp said. "We are pushing each other and it's been great." - Denver Post

  Northern Illinois and Miami have been selected to win their respective divisions in the 2022 Mid-American Conference Football Preseason Media Poll. The poll was announced at the league's annual MAC Football Kickoff at House of Blues in Cleveland and was determined by a 24-member MAC media panel. NIU was also selected to win the 2022 MAC Football Championship Game. Miami garnered 20 of 24 first place votes in the East Division and finished with 139 points. Kent State was second (116 points), followed by Buffalo (78), Ohio (72), Bowling Green (71) and Akron (28). Northern Illinois was picked to win the West Division.

The Huskies finished with 122 points, followed by Toledo (120), Central Michigan (112), Western Michigan (56), Eastern Michigan (52) and Ball State (42). The Huskies clamed their sixth MAC Football Championship last season after turning in one of the best turnaround seasons in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS). NIU posted a nine-win season after going 0-6 during the COVID-shortened 2020 campaign - becoming the first FBS program to win its league championship game one year after going winless. The Huskies return a total of 18 starters off that Championship team. - MAC Football

  Brett Gabbert completed 22 of 31 passes for 228 yards and two touchdowns, Kenny Tracy scored on an 8-yard run and Graham Nicholson kicked two field goals as Miami (Ohio) beat North Texas 27-14 in the first - and possibly last - Frisco Football Classic on Thursday. Gabbert, the brother of former NFL quarterback Blaine Gabbert, threw a 5-yard scoring pass to Kenny Davis late in the second quarter and an 11-yarder to Nate Muersch early in the third quarter for Miami (7-6), which won a bowl game for the first time since the 2010 season. Tracy's touchdown run came late in the first quarter.

Nicholson made a 48-yard field goal on the RedHawks' opening drive, which was one yard shy of his season-high, and a 36-yarder in the second quarter. Austin Aune and Isaiah Johnson scored on runs of 2 yards and 1 yard for the Mean Green (6-7). Aune was 15-of-32 passing for 228 yards and two interceptions. North Texas played without two senior starters, running back DeAndre Torrey and safety Makyle Sanders, for unstated reasons. Torrey had averaged 101.3 rushing yards per game, 41% of the 245.5-yard team average that ranked fourth in the FBS. The Mean Green had 32 rushes for a season-low 89 yards, led by Aune's 28 yards. North Texas had averaged 50 rushes per game this season. - Miami (Ohio)/AP College Football
