Two years ago we went to Camp Randall to see USU v WisconsinLast year it
was the Coliseum to see USU v USCThis season we are going to Neyland
Stadium to see USU v Tennessee... can't wait!GO AGGIES!
also, last year we caught the Rose Bowl and UCLA v New Mexico after USU v USC...
long day but two amazing stadiums!
@Ifel Ofa-sofaI've been to Neyland stadium several times. I
watched Utah play there in '84. Me and my brother were 2 of about 25 Utah
fans; out of 92,000. Utah played tough; lost 27-21. Also watched Cal and Notre
Dame play there. There's no place quite like it; enjoy!
@Spokane Ute...Thanks man. I hear they pack that place for every
game and that the capacity is now 106,000. 3rd biggest behind Michigan and Penn
State... I hear when they start singing Rocky Top, that place gets rocking!So Excited!
Two seasons ago my wonderful wife agreed to go see BYU play Notre Dame on
Saturday. Then on Monday we went to Chicago and watched the Lions play the
Bears. The Notre Dame experience was unbelievable. The Chicago experience was
unbelievably bad. Transportation was non-existent. We ended up walking from
downtown to Soldier Field and then back to our hotel. The game was uneventful
except for the fans. One Lion fan was dumb enough to show up in his gear. The
drunk Chicago fans were unmerciful. At the end of the game the poor guy just
wanted to leave the stadium and if not for security he would have got the heck
beat out of him. 300 bucks a seat. As good as the BYU/ND experience was, the
Lion/Bear game was dreadful.
For me it would definitely be the Ute's vs UCLA and Chiefs vs Niners.
I've been a Niners fan since 1980's and as a Ute fan I want to see
Alex Smith play. That would be a great weekend!
Weird, I would have thought that there would have been some help or at least
acknowledgment about those who might want avoid the Sunday Games- If the Des
News isn't going to help me there, where do I turn to? From a Mormon Ute-
Ifel Of'a-sofa & Spokane Ute:I have also been to Neyland Stadium
twice to watch my Dawgs. There is nothing like it anywhere else I've been.
It doesn't have all the tradition of ND but it is one of the funnest venues
to watch CFB. Fans are mostly respectful but when the Vols are rolling and
they've got Rocky Top going it is amazing (and a little intimidating if
you're rooting for the other side like I was). I've never been to a
louder venue...I'd like to visit LSU and Death Valley someday because
I've heard it's louder there, but I've never experienced louder
than Rocky Top. I don't know if they'll get as thunderous against USU,
but you'll have a great time Ifel Ofa...and hopefully the Aggies will work
Since the Utah home games have sold out for the last nine years and Rice-Eccles
prices have skyrocket, we have switched to 2 road games and budget a bowl game.
(We went to San Fran with the Y last). We have been to AT&T Stadium (twice),
The Coliseum, The Rose Bowl, Huskey Stadium, Notre Dame Stadium (twice) and the
Superdome!The price savings more than pays for the air.Regarding the Denver game, you can't get a ticket. The season ticket
holders buy all the single games first. It's been that way for decades.
You don't have to fly between games to see the NFL. Besides, the
Utah/Michigan and Green Bay/Detroit games; you can drive to three more:SEP 6 BYU @ UT Austin SEP 7 drive two hours to Redskins at HoustonOCT 4 Utah @ UCLA Rose Bowl OCT 5 NY Jets at San Diego (You can dream of
flying to 49ers/Chiefs but let's get real)OCT 11 BYU is in
Atlanta OCT 12 Bears @ Falcons
This Ute would talke the alternative trip without hesitation. I've already
got my tickets for the Big House. Thanks for the recommendation DesNews; I think
I'll see if I can't catch the Detroit/GB games as well.
Correction: I didn't realize BYU changed their schedule last month.Scratch OCT 11 BYU in Atlanta but you can add:OCT 30 N.O. @
Charlotte NOV 1 drive one hour to BYU at Middle Tennessee, not a game worth
traveling to though.Doesn't matter, the final decision has just
been made, she makes that choice and it's Utah home games because
we're going to Disney World. So, thanks DES NEWS I pick the
date you planned for us - BYU at CFU and Baltimore @ Tampa!Now I
just have to get my Ute wife to wear blue for a single day.
