Fans in North Central PA Fired Up For Huskies Football Season

It’s just a few weeks before the season opener on September
5, 2015, and for fans of Bloomsburg University football, it can’t come soon
enough. If you have tickets or are thinking of coming, be sure to book your
rooms at the Inn soon—we get busy on home game weekends!

The Huskies are getting a lot of attention already, with
center Ryan Geiger named a Preseason All-American by The Sporting News, and the team ranked number four in the Lindy’s Sports NCAA Division II Top 25.
Finishing last season with an 11-2 record, the team made their third straight
trip to the NCAA playoffs. And our superb 142-36 record over the past 15 years
is the best of any team in the Super Region 1 Program.
 
But we already knew they were great, right?
 
That’s why home game weekends are such a big deal around
here. Alumni and locals join students in town for game day, and it’s always a
fun time. Games are played at Robert B. Redman Stadium, located on the upper BU
campus. But much of the activity starts early in the Husky Tailgate Zone, an
exclusive parking and pre-game area designated by BU. If you’re up for that,
you can fill out an application at the BU Huskies website. Football rival,
Stonehill, will be the first home game on September 5, 2015. Homecoming this
year is October 15, pitting the Huskies against Kutztown.

While at the game, be sure to keep an eye out for Roongo—he’s
the loveable Huskies mascot. The husky was chosen as the school’s mascot in
1933, so deemed because of the dog’s noble qualities. The name is in
recognition of the University’s maroon and gold colors.
