(Sept. 4, 2013) -- The University of Texas at San Antonio is accustomed to setting and breaking records. The campus will be alive with spirit to support 2013 Roadrunners Football the week of each home game. Game week flags and banners will be distributed on Tuesdays and the week will end with Rowdy Rally each Friday afternoon.
Rowdy Rally will begin at 3 p.m., Friday, Sept. 6. Rowdy the Roadrunner will charge through the University Center Paseo, followed by the UTSA Marching Band. This week's game is 11 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 7 at the Alamodome. Remember to "whiteout" and wear your bright whites for this game against Oklahoma State.
The campus will be showered in blue and orange, from UTSA shirts, signs, flags and delicious Orange Crush ice cream floats for the Rowdy Rally. The campus will roar with pride as the football team parades through the Paseo and the University Center, and then loads the buses to go downtown.
"The Rowdy Rally is a way for our students to show support for Roadrunners football," said Zack Dunn, president of the Student Government Association. "It builds excitement for UTSA as a community as we all prepare to face our opponents at the Alamodome the following day."
At the rally, UTSA Athletics will have a booth set up with tailgating information and ticket sales. Spoon and Raven from the Wild 105.7 Spoon Morning Show will broadcast live from the rally.
>> During the Sept. 6 Rowdy Rally, the University community will get its first in-person glimpse of the thousand-pound Rowdy the Roadrunner statue that will be coming to the UTSA Main Campus. The public is invited to view the statue in person, take photos with it and make a donation to Bring Rowdy Home.
