We officially get going today with women's soccer hosting Northwest Nazarene in an exhibition game at 11:00 am at Davis Field (FREE ADMISSION FOR THE BUSINESSPERSONS SPECIAL!).
ISU won their exhibition opener 4-0 last year, and if you can't make it, you can listen live at 91.1 FM KISU, or online at www.isubengals.com (just click the listen live microphone on the front page, or the KISU link on the soccer page).
Also, sometime this afternoon I will release the men's basketball schedule, which is travel heavy early to say the least, but it does have 14 home games. Two exhibitions are Colorado Springs and Rocky Mountain (defending NAIA Champions). Non-conference road games are at Iowa State, Bradley, Notre Dame, Southern Cal, Oregon (those are the guarantee games), Utah, Utah State, Brigham Young (the end of the contracts on those), and UMKC (Missouri-Kansas City), which is a home-and-home contract. Home non-conference games are Colorado Christian (at Reed Gym early), Montana Tech, Boise State, and Cal State Bakersfield (Senior Night). ISU will have one December conference game at Sacramento State on December 19, and you can ring in 2010 with the Bengals hosting Montana on December 31 at 3:05 pm.
There is one home Sunday game, and it's January 3 at Altitude's time of choosing, which is neither here nor there, as Saturday would be up against the NFL Playoffs anyways, and a bowl game or two, so we'll take the $10,000 ... plus, we didn't have a Sunday Altitude game last year, and it was doubtful to get away with that one two years in a row.
Full schedule later on today....head out to Davis, or tune in!
