**For Immediate Release**
OPSU vs. Southern Nazarene – Should Be a Good One!
by Aggie Sports on 9/8/05

Goodwell, OK - The match-up between the Oklahoma Panhandle State Aggies and the Crimson Storm of Southern Nazarene should make for an excellent college football game on Saturday. It will be the Aggies’ annual Homecoming game and they’ll be after their first victory of the season. Southern Nazarene will also be seeking their first win of the year.

The Crimson Storm have played both of their games on the road and lost to a pair of very good teams (Graceland, 24-20 and Angelo State, 42-7).

The Aggies, also 0-2, have played two rugged road games as well. In their opener, they suffered a loss to Southwestern Oklahoma State, thanks to a field goal with two seconds left on the clock. Last week, they lost a 63-7 contest to the extremely tough Minnesota State after traveling nearly 700 miles (one way) by bus for the game.

The Aggies have beaten Southern Nazarene in each of the last two years. The Crimson Storm were 6-4 last season and OPSU was 6-5.

Spirits remain high with the Aggies, whose schedule is considerably tougher this season than last. They have added three top notch teams to their schedule including Pittsburg State, Texas State and the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Not only must they travel many miles to play these teams, they also did not have the shot to play them at home last year. Their home schedule is no pushover either, as they play the defending Lone Star Conference (North Division) Champion – Southeastern Oklahoma State, as well as Truman State (who defeated a ranked opponent in their season opening game).

The OPSU-Crimson Storm game begins at 3:00 on Saturday afternoon and football fans not able to get to campus can catch all the action live from KGYN via internet broadcast. Log on to www.opsu.edu and click on athletics to find the link. Fans may also listen to the game on PTCI’s DITV channel 150.

It should be a lot of fun in Goodwell on Saturday.
