September 19th was our first home game. We went to the Lavell Edwards Stadium to support our football team, the Cougars.
You might ask why we didn't watch the game on TV and hang out with our friends as usual?
I'd say...our family had missed a whole lot of fun games, especially the NCAA football games for the past couple of years.
If we ever miss one game, I might graduate and won't be able to see their performance again. I will regret for not sponsoring the Cougars as being a true color for years....
Talking about live experience, we've been to so many wonderful Utah games.
We used to go to every single game in the U of U Rice-Eccles Stadium (while I was a graduate student there). Since the price was low ( 7 bucks a student/spouse/dependence per game and the season pass was not the requirement) and the Ute's previous head coach Urban Meyer ( now national #1 Gator's head coach) kept a record of 14-game winning streak at that time, we kind of knew what quality/price we were looking for...
The Cougars were playing really well during the past few years. You may find out the season outcomes by googling Mountain West Conference Title or Las Vegas Bowl.
They played Oregon Ducks in 2006, UCLA Bruins in 2007, and Arizona Wildcats in 2008 in Vegas every December.
This year the Cougars has begun at a pretty good standing, #20, first cracked the nations #3 Oklahoma 14-13 at the Dallas Cowboy Stadium (then ranked #9 on Week One pools), and smashed Tulane 54-3 in the Lousiana Superdome (then ranked #7 on Week Two polls).
Well, let's take a close look....

The Cougars' defense disappointed everybody at the beginning of the 3rd quarter.The FSU didn't allow them to have any chance to touch the ball, soI didn't see any interception from the Cougars. FSU successfully converted many 3rd and 4th down....and completed lots of beautiful touchdowns.
It was getting dark
Finally, FSU upset the Cougars 54-18 and snapped the 18-game home winning streak in front of more than 64,000 Cougars fans (including me)!
After this game, BYU dropped from No.7 to No. 20.
We won another games later.
