    We should adopt something like that. I have no idea how they kept that many students at the game...most stayed the entire game.
    Their students looked like a hoot on TV. I would think the game being close and objectively entertaining helped too.

    The Arizona fans I talked to said their students usually leave at halftime too but that this is because they're usually blowing out someone or getting blown out so I'm sure the close game had something to do with it. I think the students, and all the Arizona fans for that matter, got a little more amped up by all the Bison fans in the stadium. I think you're a little less inclined to leave early if the opposing fans are making themselves heard.

    I did have to laugh at all of the "U of A" chants they started while the Wildcats were on offense because they wanted to compete with us... didn't even seem like the Arizona players minded. The Bison offensive players would be flapping their arms like the movie Angels in the Outfield if we got that loud in a home game while they were on offense.
