As the Drake University football team prepares to host the No. 4 team in the country, head coach Chris Creighton urges students to return to Drake Stadium to cheer on their Bulldogs against Montana State.
The student body turned out in droves for last Thursday's season opening win against Grand View and the squad is counting on another strong turnout to create a home field advantage. Below is a brief note and video from Coach Creighton on how significant the presence of the student body is for the team.
Dear Drake Student Body,
You guys were awesome on Thursday night! Thanks so much for being there and for proudly wearing your blue Game Day shirts. Your presence fired us up and we appreciate it immensely.
This Saturday evening at 6 p.m. we host Montana State. They are ranked No. 4 in the country. It is a huge game and a huge opportunity for us. We need you there again and we need you rowdy. Come early, wear blue, bring a friend, be loud and stay late!
The team meets at the Bulldog in front of the stadium at 3:45 p.m. That will give you a few hours to tailgate and then it is game on. See you Saturday night!
