Long before the sun rises over the rolling hills of the Palouse, the fans in crimson and gray will make their pilgrimage. They'll come stumbling out of RVs parked the night before in nearby lots. They'll walk through campus past the Bryan Clock Tower or make the hike up College Hill
They'll don jerseys bearing the names Leaf, Thompson, Bledsoe, Gleason and they'll display the number "3" in memory of quarterback Tyler Hilinski. They'll carry signs disparaging Dawgs to the West and Ducks to the South. They'll celebrate the "Popcorn Guy" and the "Fireball Chugger."
