â€œChadron State could hardly breathe beneath the Bobcat Stadium lights. And it hardly had anything to do with the smoke hanging in the Gallatin Valley night.â€
The game was sold out to the point where students on campus (who are able to get tickets for free) could not due to the limited supply that ran out early this week. Packed stadium, high spirits, and riding the wave of momentum gained last season, the Cats entered a field of explosive fans ready to be thrilled. And thrilled they were.
Â â€œA lot of (the second half running success) was the adjustments, but I have to say that Chadron State is very good up front and very solid on defense,â€ Ash said. â€œThey are strong, physical guys, they had size and I thought they tackled extremely well throughout this football game. We didnâ€™t ever have that play where we broke two or three tackles and went 60 yards.â€
Starters were kept in until late in the fourth when the four-touchdown lead gave them comfortable room to wiggle. Bozemanites, this is going to be one heck of a football season and I hope to see you at the games! I know I will be there.
