Here is a news release The Journal is passing along to the many Northwestern State Demon football fans in our area.
TODAY, Wednesday is the deadline for Northwestern State fans to get tickets in the NSU section for the Thursday, Aug. 30 season opener at Texas A&M. The tickets are available for purchase in one of three ways – by visiting the Northwestern State athletic ticket office, by calling the ticket office at 318-357-4268 or by logging onto http://www.NSUDemons.com/tickets.
The game will be the debut for both head coaches, NSU’s Brad Laird and Jimbo Fisher of Texas A&M. The Spirit of Northwestern Marching Band will attend the contest and perform on the field. Tickets are $50 for the 7:30 p.m. matchup, which is the Demons’ first against a Southeastern Conference opponent since 2015. Texas A&M set both the ticket price and the deadline for NSU to sell tickets in the Demons’ section.
The Northwestern State Alumni Association will charter a bus for interested parties to take to and from College Station, Texas. For more information on that, contact Associate Director of Alumni Affairs Van Erikson at 318-357-4415 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Journal readers who make the trip are invited to take some pictures of their group and send them along with details of your trip. Our email is TheRRJournal@gmail.com.
