So we got flights from DC to Salt Lake for under $300. So I will be making this game, does anyone know if the alumni or athletic department always sell tickets for us at away games or only when the alumni association does a tailgate? Amy (I believe that’s her name) is great to deal with but before I annoy her was curious if anyone knew that answer?

Are you flying all the way to Bozeman? From what DC airport? I have been looking and have not seen fares even close to $300. Most in the 5-600 range.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

The Alumni Association only has tickets for the games where they will be doing a Pre-Game Social. For the 2018 season, that will be for the games at Illinois and at Illinois State.

The Western Athletic office does not sell tickets to away games according to their webpage:
Tickets to Away Games: Away game tickets are not available through the Western Illinois ticket office. Please contact the host institution to order tickets.

Hello Leatherneck fans,

Can't wait for this years matchup between the Leathernecks and Cats. Lately the MVC teams are the ones to measure up to in the FCS and I'm glad we have two on the schedule this year. Here's a Bobcat Nation link for things to do around here as mentioned before in this thread. We welcome all visitors to Bozeman and especially our game day tailgates. Well except for the fans from the school to the West of us who we refer to around here as "The School of Dance". :lol: As the game gets closer, I'll hop back on and we can share some player/game plan info. Until then, keep your beer ice cold and your BBQ hot. Enjoy your summer!

I am concerned about the T.V. broadcast/streaming situation for this game. I don't see anything listed for it. I see some of the Bobcats' home games are covered by something called "Root TV" not familiar with that at all.

On a side note I didn't know Pluto T.V. was a thing. I was able to access it andwatched the NAU game on that last year.

I forget how lucky the MVFC is to have the partnership they have with ESPN.

Our game isn't listed on the Big Sky Root TV schedule: http://www.bigskyconf.com/news/2018/4/1 ... edule.aspx
They haven't posted the full broadcast schedule for 2018 yet, but I'd be surprised if the game wasn't streaming on Pluto TV.

Root TV is a cable regional sports network for the Pacific Northwest. It was formerly called Fox Sports Northwest under previous ownership.
