Oswego High School (7-0, 3-0) took on its rival from down Wolf’s Crossing, Oswego East (4-3, 0-3), in the 15th annual Crosstown Game.

With the beginning of the school year and the warm weather, every sports team is getting ready for their upcoming events at Oswego High School. Every year, each team aspires to represent the school to the best of its abilities. There are many teams at OHS to keep an eye on, from football to volleyball.
College Division I football is one of the most underappreciated sports of our pastime. It is what builds professional careers to the National Football League, and it exposes the exhilarating environment of many fans, students, and alumni. Many universities carry rich traditions, like Kansas's "Rock Chalk, Jayhawk" and Wisconsin's "jump around,” that bring together a group of fanatics to form a family. A handful of Oswego High School students can look forward to being apart of these college surroundings after graduation this May. As we are now approaching October, we can look forward to cooler skies, brighter futures, and the welcoming atmosphere of college football. Last season, fans witnessed the massacre of Alabama-Clemson for the fourth straight time, and it would be fair to have more variety in pursuit of the championship trophy. I took the time to forecast the biggest surprises, biggest downfalls, the winner of the 84th Heisman Trophy,breakdown of each Power 5 conference, and national Playoff predictions from the field of 130 Division I teams. Some of my predictions may be bold. Some may be basic. Some may be savvy. Still, I stand by them upon the upcoming season for one of the most underrated and infatuating sports in America.
