There were hundreds of cowboy hats given out throughout the game on country night… a disappointing crowd for a Friday night but the weather was nasty outside… there was a loud applause when the announcement over the new clock was given over the P.A. system… there appeared to be some miscommunication in the pre-game ceremonies as the lights were not turned off and there was no music during the player introductions.
