CINCINNATI - As millions of Americans welcomed the return of college football on Saturday, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney tried to get in on the game.

Both Romney and running mate Paul Ryan appeared in the critical swing state and football haven of Ohio on Saturday, with Ryan attending a game at his alma mater and Romney blasting President Barack Obama by telling a crowd of 3,000 supporters that America needs a new coach.

"If you have a coach that's zero and 23 million, you say it's time to get a new coach," Romney told a rally in Cincinnati, referring to the number of unemployed Americans. "It's time for America to see a winning season again, and we're going to bring it to them."
