A documentary film crew spent Monday through Wednesday on campus at Cal Poly Humboldt and will film at Chico State beginning Thursday morning through the end of Saturday night's matches. They will capture the history, characters, and current student-athletes that make up this great rivalry between California's northernmost state schools.

The Chico State women enter Saturday's contest with a record of 2-1-2, while the men are 3-2-1. Chico State's women are 20-9-6 all-time against Cal Poly Humboldt, having won seven straight against the Lumberjacks at home. Ironically, Wildcats head coach Kim Sutton has coached in all 35 of those matches. She was the head coach at Humboldt during that program's first six years of existence, from 1995-99, before making the move to Chico State.
Fans are encouraged to be equally generous and bring nutritious food items, hygiene items, and/or can openers, or to make a monetary donation to Chico State's Hungry Wildcat Food Pantry, the front door to the Basic Needs Project.
