Eastern Washington fans brave cold temps for big game

Posted: Updated:
CHENEY, Wash. -

With temperatures barely making it into the teens Saturday, fans of the Eastern Washington Eagles needed plenty of layers to stay warm at the Inferno in Cheney ahead of the FCS Championship semifinal game against Youngstown State.

"At least four layers of pants, sweats, tights and a pair of jeans to go over the top," said Buddy Wood. He's just one of the fans layering up as much as possible. He's even brought two blankets with him, "And I still feel a little cold. Not quite enough," he says.

"With the sun I think it's deceiving. You think it's warmer than it is."

Other fans aren't letting the cold get to them. Buster Heightman and his buddies set up a tent. 

"Little did we know today that they also set up a big screen TV, five heaters, a kitchen set up. It's like 75 degrees. We stay warm by tailgaiting," Heightman says.

Heightman and his friends have been loyal fans for the past decade. And maybe it's not the tailgating that's keeping them warm. It might just be the company.

"We really enjoy our time here and love it so much. Go Eags!"
