Saturday Football

September 21, 2008 Sarah Coggins

Yesterday it was once again time to head out to our college’s football stadium for a game. We arrived about an hour and a half before game time. This left us time to wander around a bit. It was a chilly start to the day – upper 50s and breezy.

Front of the football center:
The sun started shining and temps climbing as the Wolfpack took the field:

By the end of the game, we were warm and nicely sunburned to match our team colors. LOL Worth the sacrifice though for a thrilling game. NC State was taking on ranked East Carolina and probably expected to come out on bottom. I snapped this shot during the 4th quarter – the teams were tied up 24 – 24 and there were 45.2 seconds left on the clock. Notice the stadium is full. Everyone was on the edge of their seats wondering what would happen.

The 4th ended still tied. Overtime began with ECU getting the ball first. NCSU defense held and managed to recover a fumble by ECU. Our turn for the chance to score for the win….. [and a small warning – before watching turn down the volume a bit 😉 ]

And with that final play, the Wolfpack upset the Pirates 30-24. Woohoo! Go Pack!

    sounds like a great time. I cuddled up on the couch with some chicken wings to watch my Gators demolish Tennessee!

    It looks like a lot of fun. We don't have near that kind of pageantry in Australia. The third shot is great!:)
