Pack football fights till the end

CSU Pueblo vs Western State University

By Ashlyn Drury

Colorado State University Pueblo football went head to head against Western Colorado University at the Thunderbowl stadium.

 On Saturday, Sept. 24, 2022, the CSU Pueblo Football team had their first Colorado team match-up against Western Colorado University. It was a challenging game, and the opponents kept the Thunderwolves on their toes. 

CSU Pueblo had a 10 to 7 lead into the last quarter of the game when Western suddenly tied the score by making a 40-yard field goal. Shortly after, Western took a 17-10 lead with a touchdown. 

The Thunderwolves fought till the end; however, they were unsuccessful.

Although the football team didn’t walk away with a win, the crowd in attendance showed their support and rowdiness throughout the entirety. 

There were over 7,000 fans in the stands, including hundreds of students from across Colorado for CSU Pueblo Band Day and the cheer and dance teams. 

Fourth-year cheerleader, Tanner Hall, plays a significant role in engaging the crowd. You can find him tumbling, being a back spot, and getting the crowd’s attention during the game. Doing backhand, after backhand, and flipping down the track, he’s hard to miss.

 Hall says his favorite part of game day is performing with the band, cheer and dance teams during the pregame tailgates. 

The Thunderwolves are now 1-3 as of Sept. 27. On Saturday, Oct. 1, the Homecoming game for CSU Pueblo vs. Fort Lewis will be at the Thunderbowl stadium. Anyone with further questions or to learn more about Pack athletics, contact the department at (719)-549-2711.
