Touchdown tailgate!

Come to Dutch Lot at 11 a.m. and get ready to cheer on our Great Danes as they take on the St. Francis Red Flash in football at 1 p.m. on University Field.

Bring your grill and cooler, decorate your car in purple & gold, enjoy music by Ethan the Dog and check out the Family Fun Zone.

Never been tailgating or want some tips for tailgating success. Here are a few tips to make sure your “gate” is great:

• Make your menu simple and prepare in advance so you don’t forget anything.

• Eat early so you can finish in time to get over to University Field for the 1 p.m. kickoff.

• Tailgate pros recommend extra trash bags; water and handiwipes for quick cleanups.

• Raingear, just in case…

• First aid kit

• Extra ice
