  • Cheer on the Terriers in their new red uniforms as they take on the College of Wooster at 1:00 pm.
  • The first 100 alumni who stop by our hospitality tent on Henry Field will receive free t-shirts. Snacks, beverages and alumni name badges will also be available.
  • Stick around as men’s soccer will take on Wabash College under the lights at 6:00 pm.
