You rarely hear of a football game being cancelled. They play through rain, snow and all kinds of natural nastiness.
However, a contest between Concordia College–Selma (Ala.) and Miles College (Ala.) set for Sept. 21 was cancelled for one of the most unusual reasons I’ve ever heard: a bus fire.
Not just any bus fire. It was a bus inferno. After a tire blowout, the bus became fully engulfed in flames.

Obviously, all of Concordia’s football equipment was destroyed and, short of playing two-hand touch, there was no possible way to play the game.
There were no injuries to the football team or coaches.

Local new outlets report that Concordia-Selma expects to play its next game – Thursday – with equipment borrowed from local high schools.
