Catch a U of S Huskies Football Game

Catch a U of S Huskies Football Game

If you haven't attended a University of Saskatchewan Huskies football game with your family, I recommend adding a game or two to your fall family bucket list.

I graduated from Oklahoma State University, where football is a weekend ritual in the fall, complete with tailgating, an amazing marching band, big cheer squads and roaring crowds of 60,000 people. When I first moved to Saskatchewan in 2007, I was admittedly underwhelmed at the turn-out and fanfare for my first University of Saskatchewan football game in Griffiths Stadium which has a capacity of more like 6,000.

However, almost a decade later, when my daughter was 3 and my son was 7, I decided to give  Huskie football another try. We ended up having so much fun and have attended at least one U of S football game each season since.

We generally go early for some pre-game fun at Rally Alley. There's food, games, entertainment, bouncies and generally a few swag items before each game.

The games now have pyrotechnics, fun music, give-aways and a Kids Zone with large inflatables at one of the end zones. The kids always enjoy interacting with the U of S mascot, Howler, as well.

All the outside entertainment aside, my family enjoys watching the football game. My husband and I enjoy teaching the rules of the game to our kids, and they seem to enjoy learning about it.

There are four home games in the 2019 season: Sept. 6 and 27 and Oct. 4 and 26. All are Friday at 7 p.m., except the last game which is a Saturday afternoon game at 2 p.m.
