Northwestern Alumni Association to host tailgate

Aug. 18, 2011

 Northwestern Alumni Association

The Rangers’ biggest rival returns to Alva for a season-opening gridiron matchup Sept. 1, and the Northwestern Oklahoma State University Alumni Association is planning a free tailgate party to celebrate. The alumni and friends tailgate begins at 5:30 p.m., and Northwestern takes on the Southwestern Oklahoma State University Bulldogs at 7 p.m.

The Rowdy Rangers, a Northwestern booster group, will be preparing traditional tailgate food on the south tiers of Ranger Stadium. The theme of the evening is “Be True to Your School” with a special halftime performance featuring Ranger spirit and alumni talent.

“We need to have a terrific Ranger alumni and fan turnout because the Bulldogs are coming to town,” Lizabeth Richey, alumni director, said. “Help the Rangers win the season opener by showing up en masse.”

Regular game admission applies. For more information, contact Richey at 580-327-8594 or
