In the animal kingdom, football is played with cheetah running backs, buffalo linemen, and a seagull that is forced to curl up and act as the ball. Catch humanity's version of the animals' gridiron gallantry with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two reserved-seating tickets to the University of Sioux Falls Cougars football home opener against Doane College, which takes place on September 18 at 1 p.m. Reserved seats rest at the top of the stands at Bob Young Field. You must bring your Groupon to will call at least 30 minutes before the game to get your tickets.
The 2009 NAIA national champion USF Cougars return to the gridiron as the number-one-ranked NAIA team and the preseason favorite to take the Great Plains Athletic Conference title. New coach Jed Stugart will helm the 2010 squad of helmeted heroes, and he'll transfer his magic-marker strategies to a freshly painted outdoor dry-erase board for the home opener against league rival Doane College.
Join the foam-fingered fanatics to cheer on new recruit quarterback Jon Eastman and returning wide receivers Jon Ryan and Alex Anderson as they dodge tackles, infiltrate end zones, and ruffle enemy mascots' feathers. This also may be the last year to catch Sioux Falls in the NAIA, since the team has its sights set on joining Division II next season.
