It's countdown to kickoff at CenturyLink Field. When the gates open, fans will notice a couple of changes. For one, the new south end scoreboard is now operational -- and while it looks great, I can't really quite say it's night-and-day from the old one. And the north end board is still not ready.
Meanwhile, there are tarps covering the south end sections above the walkway -- reflecting what I would consider disappointing attendance expected for tonight.
However, in the north end, the Hawks Nest is open.
And hanging from a lower rail of the Hawks Nest is a sign reading "No diving."
Never miss a local story.
I'll be back with more pregame news as it develops.
