The Capital University football team will open its 2012 season Saturday, September 1, at 1:30 pm in Bernlohr Stadium against the Wittenberg Tigers. To celebrate the start of the season, the Capital Fund will hold a pregame tailgate party for all students, faculty and staff from 11 am to 1 pm in The Capital Center Field House. The tailgate has been moved inside because there is a strong chance it will rain. The event is free.

Before the game, enjoy a little friendly competition of your own at the tailgate with cornhole, ladder golf and other games. ROTC has donated its climbing wall, the Capital University cheerleaders will perform, and raffle tickets will be handed out, giving tailgaters a chance to win Capital athletic gear. Lunch will be provided, and there will be live music provided by Forest & the Evergreens.

The Capital Court will be closed Saturday, so bring your Capital ID and eat for free at the tailgate. Then head over to Bernlohr Stadium and cheer on your Crusaders at 1:30 pm.
