Atkinson has torn ACL, college career over for senior DT
BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - Senior defensive tackle Mike Atkinson suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament on Saturday night, and is officially done for the season ... which means his college football career.

The Windsor, Ontario native, nicknamed Canadian Bacon, ranked sixth on the team in tackles, had one and a half sacks, two forced fumbles, recovering one of them, and Bronco Nation won't soon forget his interception and rumble to the end zone against BYU?

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats selected Atkinson in the 3rd round of the 2012 CFL Draft, so there is still hope he'll be able to continue his football career.
