There's an incredible mascot party at Saturday's season opener for Army
Not only is college football officially back, the very fun and weird things that come along with the season have also returned. Even if it’s in a limited-capacity stadium.
On Saturday, one of the first games of the day featured Middle Tennessee taking on Army in West Point, giving the Black Knights an early-season home game. The cadets in attendance — yes, they were permitted to attend — had quite a bit of fun dressing up in mascot uniforms for the game.
At one point, they were even having a miniature parade in the bleachers at Michie Stadium. Below is the video, shared by ESPN:

There was plenty for the cadets to celebrate on Saturday afternoon. Army owned a 21-0 lead over Middle Tennessee at the end of the first half. The Knights also enjoyed a 35-0 advantage in the third quarter.
Welcome back, college football.
