HAMMOND – It’s being called the “Golden Opportunity.”
Southeastern Louisiana University football fans are being urged to wear gold shirts to Saturday’s football game – the final game of the season – when the Lions take on arch-rival Nicholls State at 2:30 p.m. in Strawberry Stadium.
“The game is being televised throughout the region on Cox Sports Television and we want the stands to be a wall of gold in support of our team,” said Athletic Director Joel Erdmann.
The Southeastern Bookstore will open at 10 a.m. to sell special gold game-day t-shirts and other apparel. The special shirts will also be sold by vendors around the stadium prior to the game.
Saturday Southeastern will also host a Game Day Gumbo Cook-Off for tailgaters prior to the game. The best gumbo will be decided by the public, who are invited to make the rounds of participating tailgates in Friendship Circle to sample and vote for their favorite versions by making a small contribution. Proceeds will go to the Lions Athletic Association. The contest will conclude at 1 p.m. and winners will be announced at halftime.
