Welcome to Family Weekend!

We are currently monitoring weather conditions for Saturday's Family Weekend Tailgate. At this time, we are still planning to host the tailgate outside, on Sanford Mall.
A decision regarding an inclement weather plan will be made by noon on Friday. An updated message will be posted to this website, and will also be emailed to all registered tailgate guests.
Please make plans to dress appropriately for the weather forecast. We look forward to seeing you soon!
