Preview: Harding v.s. OBU


((WESS)) GAC FOOTBALL STARTS TOMORROW NIGHT. ARKANSAS TECH AND UáAáM PLAY IN MONTICELLO. PLUS SAU TRAVELS TO SOUTHERN NAZARENE. BUT MOST OF THE TALK SURROUNDS ANOTHER GAME. FOX16’S JAY BIR HAS MORE. THE GREAT AMERICAN CONFERENCE KICKS OFF THEIR SEAZSON THIS THURSDAY NIGHT, IN FACT WE’VE ALREADY GOT THE GAME OF THE YEAR HERER IN ARKADELPHIA AS THE OBU TIGERS WILL HOST THE HARDING BISONS. BOTH OF THESE TEAMS ARE NATIONALLY RANKED, BOTH TEAMS WERE PICKED FIRST AND SECOND IN THE PRESEAON POLLS, IN FACT, IT’S A GAME THAT’S SO BIG THAT ESPN WILL BE STREAMING IT AS PART OF THEIR DIVISION TWO FOOTBALL SHOWCASE… “It’s respect that the NCAA and ESPN would pick it up that kinda thing. Respect for both programs and where both programs are at. It’s an honor and what we wanna do is go represent the right way.” “It is exciting for our people, for our fans especially the ones that can’t be there.” BIG GAMES DESERVE THE BIG STAGE AND THAT’S WHAT OBU AND HARDING WILL GET. THESE TWO TEAMS WERE DEFENSIVELY DOMINANT LAST YEAR RANKING ONE AND TWO IN ALL OF DIVISION TWO SO DON’T EXPECT A LOT OF CHANGES… “We’ve gotta play almost perfect you know that’s what we’ve talked about because we know how good they are on defense and how they’ll attack.” “We’re very familiar with them, they’re familiar with us and so it’s gonna be what it is, it’s gonna be a dogfight.” THERE’S STILL A WHOLE SEASON AFTER THIS GAME BUT WITH IT BEING THE TWO BIG DOGS IN THE GAC RIGHT NOW IT CERTAINLY REVS THINGS UP JUST A LITTLE… “I think the fact we’re gonna open with OBU has added urgency. We can’t afford to play the way we normally play in a first ball game, we gotta be in midá season form in Week 1. ” “Maybe the media sometime hypes them up a little bigger than we do. What we gotta do is put on our hard hat and play football and be ready to move on after the game’s over.” WE ARE HYPING THIS GAME BECAUSE IT DESERVES IT!! AND EVEN THROUGH THE COACH SPEAK BOTH TEAMS DO REALIZE THAT IT’S THE PERFECT GAME TO BE ON A NATIONAL PLATFORM… “So every game is a big game but certainly this is a big football game and we can’t wait to be in it.” “It’s gonna be a great game, you got two really good football teams.” SO BOTH TEAMS WITH HIGH HOPES ON THE SEASON AS BOTH HAVE MADE THE NATIONAL SEMIFINALS THE PAST TWO YEARS, HARDING IN 2017, OBU LAST YEAR. IN FACT BOTH TEAMS PUT OUT BY FERRIS STATE LAST SEASON. AGAIN, THURSDAY NIGHT KICKOFF, 7 PM AND IT WILL BE STREAMED ON ESPN.COM AND THE ESPN APP AS PART OF THE DIVISION TWO FOOTBALL SHOWCASE, FROM OUTSIDE CLIFF HARRIS STADIUM IN ARKADELPHIA JB F16… THAT’S A GREAT GAME, BUT WE HAVE ANOTHER GREAT ONE FOR YOU TOMORROW. LAKESIDE AND LAKE HAMILTON KICKOFF AT SEVEN ON KARZ. LAST SEASON THEY HAD AN
