I love this skit:

Almost 50 years later, it’s amazing how much election night coverage still resembles that. And in a different country to boot.

This week’s games have already started, with 3 MAC games and Wake Forest-N.C. State! There’s tremendous excitement here at the moment and we should be getting the first results through any moment now! Ah, I’m just getting... I’m just getting... a loud buzzing noise in my left ear. And let’s go straight over to Buffalo, for our first result:

Kent State... (sensible party)... 14. Buffalo... (silly party)... 48. The silly party have held Buffalo. I think this is mainly due to the number of points scored. We go now to Oxford, Ohio:

Ohio (sensible party)... 28. Miami University Fim-Tim-Lim-Bim Bus Stop F’Tang F’Tang Ole Biscuitbarrel of Ohio (silly party)... 30. That was close. And that’s a very significant result! Miami of Ohio normally a sensible constituency, with a high proportion of people who aren’t a bit silly, has gone completely gaga!

Over to Toledo, where Northern Illinois won 38-15! This is exactly as andrewpina and carlzee predicted it, except that Northern Illinois won. These results make for a big swing in the MAC! I’ve worked out what the swing is, but I’m not going to tell you.

I’ve just been informed that... my aunt is ill! Possibly gastroenteritis! If this were repeated over all of college football, it would probably very messy. Just to bring you up on a few results you may have missed:
