Frisco, TX--I have arrived in the pressbox at FC Dallas Stadium. It is a cloudy day right now but the sun is supposed to come out by kickoff if the weather forecast is correct. It is 44 degrees right now with a high supposedly to be at 54 this afternoon.
This rematch as I stated before this is the same two schools to play as last year in this game but both have several differences that should in my opinion make this a closer contest that I believe won't be decided until the final possession.
One difference today is that SHSU will be wearing their home orange uniforms and NDSU will be wearing their road white uniforms.
The officials today will be an all-star crew from the Big Sky Conference and having been a part of their media days in the past, they should call a fair game as I know that they really work to get their officials up educated on the recent rule updates and such.
The field looks great with a bright green natural grass that has not seen any kind of game action in 2 months.
The press box is a little cramped as I can remember from a year ago. But that really the only complaint I can make for the whole championship experience. Overall, Frisco and the Southland Conference have done a great job for all of us working the game.
Less than fifty minutes to kickoff and I can't wait for this one to start. Like I mentioned before, I think this game will go down to the wire and the winner most likely will not be decided until the final minutes.
As I mentioned in the prediction, I think the Bearkats will get revenge this year but the game will come down to turnovers and who can make a big or unique play.
We shall see in this rematch.
