(Aug. 31, 2012) -- The University of Texas at San Antonio is accustomed to setting and breaking records. During its inaugural 2011 football season, UTSA set an NCAA startup program record for inaugural game attendance with 56,743 fans. This year, UTSA hopes to break the record for most school spirit on campus with a new celebration called Rowdy Rally. The new tradition will begin at 3 p.m., Friday, Sept. 7.

The campus will be alive with spirit to support the 2012 football team the week of each home game. Game week flags and banners will be distributed on Tuesday and the week will end with Rowdy Rally on Friday.

"We're thrilled and humbled that the campus community has come up with a new tradition to help support the football program on the Friday before home games," said head coach Larry Coker. "The support from the students, faculty and staff has been incredible and honestly more than I could have ever envisioned. The coaching staff and all of our players certainly appreciate everything the UTSA family has done to show their spirit for our program."

At Rowdy Rally, Rowdy the Roadrunner will charge through the Paseo, followed by the UTSA Marching Band. Attendees will learn a new UTSA cheer every week to take with them to the Alamodome. The campus will be showered in orange from the UTSA shirts, signs, flags and delicious Orange Crush ice cream floats. The campus will roar with pride as the football team parades through the Paseo, University Center and then loads the buses to go downtown.

Athletics also will have a booth set up with tailgating information and ticket sales.

"Our gloriously rowdy fans helped us set NCAA attendance records last season, and they are the backbone of our motivation throughout the season," sophomore center Nate Leonard said. "So much so, that they never leave me without a chill up my spine."

Don't miss the chance to be a part of the newest UTSA tradition.

Did You Know?

Sometimes you have to see the little picture

UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.

That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.

Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
