Goodwell, Okla. - It will be the best in family entertainment this Saturday night on the Oklahoma Panhandle State campus as the Aggies tangle with tough Southwestern Oklahoma State in what promises to be an exciting football game. Thanks to the patronage of Tri-County Electric Co-Op the game will be open to the public at no charge.
The Aggies played with heart in their opening game on September 1 against a good Langston team. Though they dropped a 29-0 decision, first year head coach Mike Wyatt saw many positive things and he and his staff have been working hard to prepare the Aggies for the game with Southwestern (2-1 on the year).
OPSU stands 0-1 on the young season, having had last weekend off.
It should be a fun night for the entire family with a great brand of NCAA Division II football, the award winning OPSU Cheer Team, the OPSU Pep Band, and what promises to be a large and enthusiastic crowd.
This year’s Aggies are a young team, but a group of dedicated student athletes who are working hard on the field as well as in classroom and they are determined to put up a good fight against the Bulldogs, the defending North Division champions in the rugged Lone Star Conference. The Bulldogs’ 2-1 record includes wins against Northwestern Oklahoma and Texas A&M-Kingsville, and a 47-10 road loss last week to Midwestern State.
Tri-County Electric is a very good friend of the University and the organization is in partnership with OPSU in many areas – including a generous contribution to the school’s new Science and Ag building, game buyouts for football and basketball, scholarships, and the sponsorship of the very successful Community Service Learning program.
It should be a very fun and exciting late summer Saturday night on the OPSU campus. Kick-off is set for 7:00 p.m.
For those who cannot attend the game in Goodwell, fans can listen to all the football action live from KGYN via internet broadcast with a kick-off time set for 7:00 p.m. Log on to www.opsu.edu and click on Athletics to find the link. Fans may also catch the game on PTCI’s DITV channel 150.
The words “GO AGGIES” should ring loudly on the OPSU campus this Saturday night.
