Cougar Football Countdown: 25 days


As the season draws close now, fans are looking for the best places to keep up to date. All Coug’d Up will be up to the task, covering all things Cougar Football throughout the week and every Saturday, including Pre-game matchups, timely game summaries, reviews and rhetoric, interesting Pac-12 subplots and more!

One of my favorite Cougar traditions is the pre-game countdown by the student section from a whole hour before the game, where they count down the final 10 seconds before an hour remaining and then shout “1 HOUR TO COUGAR FOOTBALL!”. The count down continues again at various intervals until 1 minute remains and it’s like you’ve finally arrived. Generally, the coin toss is being held at this time and it’s just an anticipatory event. My brother and I text it or shout it to eachother throughout the day as the buildup and anticipation builds and it’s just fun. Heck, I’m counting down now!

The Cougs worked out in shoulder pads and helmets for the first time this Fall on Sunday. The Cougs are counting down the days on their website by featuring the player who where’s the number of days remaining. Today it is of course #25 Wide Receiver Bennett Bontemps. Hope you’re ready, cause we’re getting goose bumps and are ready for some Cougar Football!
