The border battle returns – NEO vs. Coffeyville

Miami, Oklahoma – Monday, Aug. 26, 2013 – Officials at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) are pleased to announce the border-battle rivalry between NEO and Coffeyville will return this season. The two teams are scheduled to face off Saturday, Sept. 7 with kickoff at 7 p.m. in Coffeyville, Kan. Tickets for the game are $6 for adults and $3 for students.

The Golden Norsemen of NEO will travel to Coffeyville, Kan.to play at Veterans Memorial Stadium. The stadium, which seats approximately 5,500 fans, opened for football on Aug. 25 in the “border battle” against NEO back in 2001. Now, due to a cancellation to both schools from Metro State University, the rivalry can return.

Students are encouraged to attend the game. NEO will provide a bus to transport those who wish to attend. Students can sign up to ride the bus in the student center located inside the Bruce Carter Student Union.

“Although we were disappointed not to open our season on Thursday, Aug. 22, 2013 at home, we are very excited about playing the Ravens,” said Sherard Poteete, head coach for the Golden Norsemen. “This is the only away game we play that is actually close enough for our boosters and fans to attend, so we are looking forward to filling their facility with lots of blue and gold”.

NEO is planning a large tailgate to take place outside of the stadium, which will start at 5:30 p.m. The tailgate will be located in the gravel parking lot in the north end of the field. Reservations can be made by calling the NEO Athletic Department at 918-540-6327. The tailgate will include brats, hot dogs, hotlinks, chips, drinks and desserts for only $5.

In addition to the tailgating, the NEO band and cheerleaders will be there to encourage school spirit. The NEO Norse Stars, under the direction of Michele Martin, will also be making their debut performance since their disbandment last year.

All NEO boosters and fans are encouraged to make the short drive to Coffeyville and help cheer on the Golden Norsemen. For questions or additional information, please contact the NEO Athletic Department.
