I know it’s hard to believe, but college football kicks off this weekend.
My beloved Oklahoma State University Cowboys will start the season on the road, taking on Washington State at 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Qwest Field in Seattle. The game will be televised on FSN.
For those of you who follow the Sooners, the University of Oklahoma plays Chattanooga at 6 p.m. Saturday at Owen Field in Norman. The game will be on pay-per-view.
Naturally, you can find out all about the Cowboys’ and Sooners’ preparations, and learn about how they did after the games, at www.newsok.com/sports.
My friend Stephanie Gonzales, shown here playing with the Oklahoma Centennial All-Star Band last year at the Oklahoma State Fair, will make her debut with the University of Oklahoma Pride of Oklahoma marching band on Saturday.
If you are watching the OU game from the stadium or on TV, keep an eye out on the Pride of Oklahoma marching band. My dear friend Stephanie Gonzales, a freshman trumpet player at OU, will make her debut with the band on Saturday.
Heading down to the Swamp, my husband’s University of Florida Gators will start their season at home in Gainesville against Hawaii on Saturday. (For those of you who don’t know, my husband attended UofF before moving to OSU, and he has many wonderful family members in the Gainesville area who are among the Gator faithful. We will be cheering along with them.)
So, sports fans, grab some snacks and settle in for what we all hope will be great season of football action. Even though it seems early, I’m stoked to have football back in my entertainment regimen.
