Rice football stadiumWith the official start of college football returning this week, the countdown to kickoff has begun here at Rice. On Saturday, September 5, the Rice Owls will take on the Wagner Seahawks in what some are calling the “Battle of the Birds.” Join us at Rice Stadium in Tailgate Owley starting at 12:30 p.m. where we'll be giving away free tickets and koozies before the game kicks off at 2:30 p.m. There will be a drawing for one lucky individual to win a free non-limited enrollment Personal Development course in our Arts, Humanities and Sciences or Lifestyle section.

Our tent will be stationed near Taps & Tailgates, a Beer Garden collaboration between the Rice Owls and Bud Light. We hope to see you there! Visit glasscock.rice.edu for a complete list of our course offerings. Go Owls!

Note: Limited quantity of tickets available on a first-come, first-served basis.  Purchase additional tickets here.
