Reno • Southern Utah opened last season with an upset victory and used it as a springboard to the Thunderbirds' first-ever playoff berth.
Can SUU do it again?
On Saturday, Southern Utah begins a new season at Nevada. Kickoff is 1 p.m. MDT.
In their opener a year ago, the Thunderbirds rallied for a 22-21 victory at South Alabama. SUU eventually finished 8-4 in the regular season and secured an at-large bid to the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs.
According to coach Ed Lamb, the Thunderbirds are ready for a stern test against Nevada, which last year finished 4-8 overall and 3-5 in the Mountain West Conference.
