It may have been a quiet weekend in East Lansing, but not in Ann Arbor. On "Current Sports with Al Martin," let's step back into a weekend rife  with college football. Although the Michigan State Spartans were without a game, the Michigan Wolverines had a difficult match against a not-so-difficult opponent. Al goes over what is wrong with the Wolverines and why it might be time to panic, despite a 3-0 start. Then, Al and engineer Isaac Constans peruse the college football rankings in search of overrated or overlooked teams. Some big names stand out. Two callers open up about their weekend takeaways, before a transition is offered into the sport of boxing. Just as boxing was at its peak, following a close duel between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin, a self-inflicted wound took it down. Al and Isaac rant about how one scorecard changed their view of boxing forever. Lastly, Al previews tonight's Detroit Lions game.
