It’s time now to turn the page. If you read the recap of my recent trip to Lincoln, Nebraska – the second leg of the MSF-La Quinta College Football Road Trip – you know how much fun I had spending the weekend with one of my favorite people in what is now one of my favorite college towns. And this came on the heels of a similarly great weekend in Norman, Oklahoma with my little bro Bryce. The big difference between Weeks 1 and 2 of the #LaQuintaTrip is that Week 1 was almost all about the football game itself (we had incredible 50-yard line seats for an epic Big 12 upset) while Week 2 was about everything that surrounded the football game. Week 3, this weekend in Austin, Texas, will be about both. Matthew McConaghey thinks this is the most exciting stop on the MSF-La Quinta College Football Road Trip. It’d be hard to top #8 v #11 under the lights in Darrell K. Royal Stadium. (Image credit: Jed Jacobsohn/Getty Images via B/R) And my, my what a gave we’ll get to watch: West Virginia
