Hi Nuggies!

This is Jesse. I'm in Boise for tonight's tilt against Fresno State and for the first time I get to take advantage of OBNUG's press pass.

Follow along as I take you through the game day from our new point of view. Heck, who knows, I might even be able to get a selfie with Cripe and Southern.

No promises.

12:00pm - Catch the Link Light Rail to Sea-Tac

12:45pm - 1:30pm - Grab a quick bit at the Seahawks 12th Club by Gate N

2:30pm PST- Catch flight: SEA > LWS > BOI

A fellow passenger's jounrey: FAT > SEA > LWS > BOI... Nice guy despite his preference in college football teams. At least his son is a Bronco!

6:00pm MST- Land, get rental car. Look at this gem...

7:00pm - Eat dinner at St. Lawrence Gridiron

Had the Mac and Cheese with Weenies. The Mac and Cheese was good, not great, but the Weenies were exquisite (that's a foodie term, right?).
