OSHKOSH- Fans were in the stands, players were on the field and despite the warm weather, you could almost feel a chill in the air.
"Getting into the fall season and having a good time, coming out here, watching some good football," said Jodi Gelhar.
"Feels good to be back watching them play again," said Kim Krupp.
At Titan Field in Oshkosh the Lourdes Academy Knights took on the Horace Mann Orioles from North Fond du Lac Friday. It was the first game of the season and fans were excited to start the end of summer tradition.
Everyone has a favorite part of the game.
"Watching my kid play and that stuff, playing as a team and hoping that they win," said Krupp.
"I get to watch my boyfriend play football! He's terrific, so it makes it more enjoyable to watch," said Brittany Parker.
"Find the ball, see where it's going and cheer for the good plays," said Gelhar.
Recent graduates came out to relive the glory days on the field.
"It's more missing it, actually, but watching it is kind of cool to, like, compare what we did back then to what they're doing now," said Brett Baehman.
And there was confidence in the stands.
"They always have a great team," said Baehman.
But despite the excitement, high school teams were competing for fans with the pros. Some, Kim Krupp, admitted the Packers game Friday might have kept some the stands a little more empty than usual.
"Most likely you'll just have mostly parents and that stuff here, some kids," said Krupp.
But for Krupp, his son comes before the pack. Besides there's DVR at home.
"I'll watch it when I get home," said Krupp.
Because out here, the first game is one of the most important of the season.
"It's pretty big. Get all the butterflies out, test the waters, see what you got and go from there every week," said Baehman.
