    The Reddies haven't had much trouble going anywhere in the last five or six years (31-game road winning streak from 2011-2017, loss to OBU last November was HSU's first ever GAC road loss).

    That being said, the UAM trip is tough in my mind just because of that field.

    1. Henderson - Fans are pretty good, it (for whatever reason) seemed to be hot when we played there, and the turf was very slick. Just not fun.
    2. UAM - Grass is inordinately high
    3. SEO - Prior to the new turf they had something that was worse than astroturf...by far the worst surface I'd ever played on.
    4. NWOSU/S. Naz/ECU - just not a fan of rural OK, fully expected tumbleweeds in the stands

    Bonus: Favorite place to play - OBU. Crowd was always good, and it just has the feel of a backyard football game in the afternoon.

    As you can tell, fans aren't a huge factor IMO in the GAC. A lot of the time there are not enough fans to make noise loud enough to be distracting, though the fan bases are dedicated and growing since I left.
