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.

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?).

8:49pm - Now the crowd's awake... and Fresno doesn't convert the long third down. It must have been that three minute long BOISE STATE chant that re-energized everyone.
