The #10 Mesa Thunderbirds will open its season Saturday night at John D. Riggs Stadium against ACCAC rival Phoenix College Bears at 7 pm.
Last season, these two teams met in game one at PC and the Bears won on a last second pass play, beating the T-Birds 43-42. It did not take long though for Mesa to avenge its tough loss as they scored 58 points in a 58-13 win at MCC later that season.
With a lot of player turnover from both teams from last season, tonights match up will definitely be one to see. Catch all the action on T-Bird Sports Live, click on the link below.
