We made sure to plan our Texas trip so that I wouldn't have to miss a football game. It's a good thing we did because we got to sit in my grandparent's awesome seats. The game was scheduled for really late at night (8:00), so they decided not to go. When they asked if we wanted their tickets, I jumped at the chance. I've always wanted to sit in their seats for a game. They are on about the 45 yard line on the west side. They are the very last row before the box seats. You take an elevator up to them and have someone escort you to your seats. The seats have backs on them and there are only two seats in the row, so you don't have to climb over anyone. They are awesome!
We saw President Uctdorf ahead of us in line for the elevator which was pretty cool! As you can probably imagine, it was such a different experience than other football games we have attended. We enjoy attending football games in our regular seats, but it was fun to watch one from this perspective.
We could see the Provo Temple and the Y lit up for homecoming from our seats.
And it didn't hurt that we beat San Jose State 29-16!
Thanks for sharing your seats with us Grandpa and Grandma Ririe!!

Glad I could tend "The Corb" for you so you could have this BYU experience!
