Last Saturday, The PSU football team defeated Southern Oregon with a 52-0 blowout; A great way to kick off the season! The majority were scored towards the beginning of the game, stretching out the first half for 2 hours. With the Viks winning, students cheered on from the bleachers in their PSU gear.
Having attended games in previous years, I definitely saw an improvement in turn out. Usually not many people attend, which makes it a complete different experience from other schools like OSU, where students tailgate and tickets run out. I realize we’re not a Pac 12 school, but we still lack school spirit. The fact that we’re not a traditional residential university is a big reason why there’s a shortage of supporters attending games.
Whether it was the renewed JELD-WEN Stadium, nice weather, or awesome fireworks, we had a pretty good turnout for the first game. It was a little hard to get into it the second half since we were winning, but at least we were the ones scoring this time! Overall, I had a good time. It was nice to see more people show up compared to other games. Either way, you won’t have trouble getting hold of a ticket or a seat.
Vikings play next on Sept. 17 against Northern Arizona @ 5:05pm JELD-WEN Stadium. Show your school spirit by attending the game in PSU colors and support our football team.
Did you attend the game? Do you care about PSU football?

The game was great! The stadium looked awesome and the weather was perfect. PSU football is on the rise and we need to support them!
Thanks for your comment Sam, keep supporting our Viks!
This was an awesome game! I hope to see a lot more people out at the September 17th game!
So do I, and hopefully another win as well.
I’ve never been to a PSU game, but will be there next Saturday. Hopefully attendance will increase now that the games are at Jeld-Wen.
It seems to be that way, but we’ll see how attendace looks later in the season. You should definitely go, they’re pretty fun!
