Audibles in store for game festivities

Saturday will be one of the most anticipated games of the year for Louisiana Tech as it takes on Texas A&M at Independence Stadium. It has been a long wait for the Bulldogs and fans as they had to hold their horses to get ahold of the Aggies due to Hurricane Isaac when the game was initially scheduled.


But now the day is near and kickoff will be at 8:15 p.m. Because of this, many activities will change.


The night will no longer have the Pro Football Hall of Fame day. But there will be the Global Strike Command Day, which will honor various commanders of Barksdale Air Force Base as well as viewing a special pregame tribute video as part of the 60th anniversary of the B-52 aircraft.


We will not get to see the historic B-52 plane fly over Independence Stadium due to the late night scheduling of the game.


Things that will stay the same will be the Louisiana Tech Alumni Association and LTAC will be hosting a tailgate sponsored by Argent Financial Group in the Roundup Room located adjacent to the Hirsh Coliseum from 5-7:30 p.m.


The cost for that tailgate will be $8 in advance and $12 at the door.


RSVP for the tailgate at www.latechalumni.org/am12 or call the Marbury Alumni Center at 318-255-7950.


Plenty of other Tech fans and supporters will be out on Independence territory tailgating as well.


Also the Tech tradition of pregame skydivers will faithfully hit the turf 20 minutes prior to kickoff.
