Eccles Coliseum is a beautiful place to take in a game as you’ll have a fantastic view of the beautiful Red Mountains as well as the beautiful Southern Utah campus. The stadium also provides fans with plenty of unique architecture as the south end zone’s design commemorates the Olympic Torch passing through Cedar City and is quite the sight to behold.
In addition to a beautiful view, Southern Utah is home to some wonderful fans. Southern Utah may not be the biggest program, but that doesn’t’ mean the fans that show up aren’t some of the most die hard fans out there. The stands at Eccles Coliseum are typically packed full of Thunderbirds fans, none more so than the student section.
Finally, the Southern Utah spirit groups and the band put on a great show. The band will keep you entertained with their musical performance throughout the game, and you won’t want to miss the halftime performance by the SUU Waukeenyans. The Thunderbirds mascot Thor is also a big part of the show as well, so keep an eye out for him as you never know what he’ll do next.
A Southern Utah Thunderbirds game is a fun experience for any FCS football fan, so don’t hesitate to take a trip to Cedar City, Utah.
