C.of I. Looking to Break Football Attendance Record
The College of Idaho currently ranks third in the nation among NAIA teams for football attendance in 2019.
Just over 4,000 fans showed up for the Yotes season opener a 48-12 win over Eastern Oregon. Following a win at Montana Tech the 15th ranked Coyotes are 2-0 and hosting Southern Oregon Saturday at 1 p.m. in a game of Top 25 teams.
That being said the College of Idaho is trying to break a stadium attendance record set back in 2014 of 5,356 for the return of football to Caldwell and the C.of I. campus.
Kickoff tomorrow is set for 1 p.m. plenty early for football fans to catch a Treasure Valley doubleheader since Boise State doesn't kickoff until 8:15 p.m. There would even be time for diner between the two games!
Another reason to be part of what is expected to be a great crowd at Simplot Stadium tomorrow is to see Yote running back Nick Calzaretta. He has 371 rushing yards in two games, tops in NAIA and his 8.8 yards per carry is also number one.
The next NAIA poll to be released will follow this weekends action and a 3-0 start might well jump the Coyotes into the top 10.
