We like to call Brayden and Mikayla the "third couple" in circumstances like this....the ones the rest of us all roll our eyes about based on their craziness. Yes, they were happy they got to come, but no, they weren't entirely focused on the game. (Playing apps on the ipad minis, hopping around, and eating, eating, eating....). I will admit that it wasn't a very riveting game as we kind of blew Tennessee out of the water (59-14). There's such a bias for SEC teams that it is gratifying to beat one of their teams so adamantly.
I was delighted that the marine air was hanging around through our game. At one point, the forecast was for 90 degrees while we'd be there...I was really worrying about melting in the stands as our seats face the sun. We lucked out, it stayed cool throughout, with the clouds clearing only after the game ended.
Autzen Stadium has underwent some huge renovations in the last several years (thank you Phil Knight). Among the new changes this year was this beautiful waterfall where we enter to reach our seats. There were lots of families/couples posing just like we did.
