First Bobcat Football Game Kicks Off

BOZEMAN -

The day that all Bobcat fans have been waiting for is finally here. On Thursday night, the Bobcats will have their first football game of the 2013 season against Monmouth, an FCS team from New Jersey.

Dan Oughney has been coming to the Bobcat football games since 1973, but this year is a little different. He is having his first ever pig roast before the game.

"We are having a 100 pound pig stuffed with German sausage and Polish sausage," said Oughney. "It has been cooking since 9:15 this morning."

Every year, Oughney reserves two spots for tailgating, one for his RV, one for the feast.

"We got the old RV that hauls everything in," said Oughney. "We've been doing this since they've allowed us to reserve spaces over here."

MSU Athletic Director, Peter Fields said there are three major changes fans will sere this year.

"The new things this year are the logo in the field, the parking lots and the uniforms," said Fields.

Also new, the Code of Champion.  Fans can send a text message to the number 69050 if they have a problem while at the game.

"If somebody got hurt or injured they can text that number and it will go to a central area. Then those will be sent the correct responders," said Fields.

Fields said he expects around 20,000 fans at the game Thursday night. He also adds they have asked for assistance from the Bozeman Police Department and the Gallatin County Sheriff's Office to monitor the crowds.
