In Game

Bowers Stadium is one of the toughest places for opposing teams to play thanks to the incredible support of the Bearkats fans. All throughout the game Sam Houston State fans cheer and chant to get into the heads of the opposition.

No group of fans is louder than the Kat Krazies. The Kat Krazies sit near the 50-yard line and give the opponents a hard time by cheering and chanting, as well as banging mallets and drums. If you want to sit with the most die-hard Bearkats fans out there, then make sure to get a spot in the east stand near the 50-yard line.

It’s not just the great fan support that makes attending a Bearkats game a fun experience. The band and spirit squads also put on excellent performances.
