that's all i have to say.
after fifteen years, the utah state aggies won against the university of utah. i have never been more proud to be an aggie than last night. it was a huge rivalry game and the aggies came out on top during overtime. it was a historic moment and a game i'll never forget.
the student section only holds about 6500 students and every student on campus wanted to go to this huge rivalry game. once all the seats were full, they wouldn't let any more students in. people started to line up by the stadium early in the morning. me and my favorite miss jessica headed to the stadium around 2:45. we waited in line for a few hours before they opened the gates to let the students in. once the gates were opened, it was a mad dash to the bleachers. all the students took off into a wild run to get a good seat. we ended up by the 40 yard line on the fifteenth row or so... the energy in the stadium was insane. once the game started, there was no stopping us. this morning my voice is sore and almost gone because i was screaming so much. we were in the lead for most of the game until utah tied us in the 4th quarter. all hell broke loose and the fans were going absolutely nuts. the energy made the bleachers shake and then we went into over time. we won 27-20. with just a few seconds left in the game, all the students started to rush to the bottom of the bleachers. when we finally won, we went buck wild. all the aggies hopped the fences and ran down the stairs and we stormed the field. we were all screaming and yelling and crying as we sprinted to the middle of the field. it was one of the most amazing things i've ever experienced. thousands of utah state students standing on the field celebrating together and singing our chants. the cherry on top was when we all sang the scotsman in the middle of the field. talk about chills.
hands down the best college experience i've had yet. oh, and i was on tv. i freaking love being an aggie.
and here is a short video of us while we were storming the field. don't mind my finger.
