BANGOR - The Black Bears are in the process of making final preparations for tomorrow's tilt with the Wildcats.


Despite the quick turnaround they're staying loose after their flight from Bangor to Salt Lake City this morning.

The flight was around five and a half hours today putting them in Utah just before 5 eastern today.

The team has made its way up to Ogden from Salt Lake City, the site of Weber State University and Friday's game.

Most of the Black Bears have never traveled this far west.

There was no anxiety with this group though - only excitement.

"Ah you know it's been a little (sic) hectic we didn't have our usual off day which was tough at first, " said tight end Drew Belcher.

"I think traveling is fun (sic) obviously you get to be with everybody and you get time away from home which is nice..," said quarterback Chris Ferguson.
