Bring da noise: Aggies coming home to full promo schedule

By
From page B1 | September 11, 2013 |

Home, sweet home.

After back-to-back road losses, the UC Davis football team literally gets some home cooking beginning this Saturday when Northern Arizona comes to town.

The important nonleague game against the Big Sky Conference mate Lumberjacks also will kick off a bevy of home-game promotions that will be rich in food and refreshment.

“Back to School Night” and a Food Truck Tailgate highlight this home opener. But the festivities are just beginning. Tailgating again has the green light and designated tailgating areas will be located in Lot 56, just south of the Aggie Stadium scoreboard, as well as in the North Field near the Bob Foster Team Center on the opposite end of the facility, according to UCD officials.

Lot 56 provides guaranteed parking for qualifying TeamAggie members with remaining spaces available to the public on a first-come, first-served basis for $25.

Season passes to park in the North Field are sold out but the area will serve as the location for most of the 2013 season’s promotions before each game. Tailgating policies, which permit the use of alcohol, will apply to the two designated areas, Aggie athletics communications director Mike Robles reports.

Lot 30, across the street from the northwest corner of the stadium, has previously been a designated tailgating area, but will revert to regular parking for 2013. As a result, the price to park in Lot 30 has been reduced nearly 50 percent to $8, the regular parking rate for game-day lots. Alcohol use will no longer be allowed in Lot 30, Robles adds.

In addition to the invasion of the food trucks, “Grillin’ on the Gridiron” — featuring regional BBQ grill masters — will be spotlighted on Sept. 21 when the Aggies host Portland State.

UCD Oktoberfest, featuring more than 75 beers for tasting, returns prior to the matchup with Idaho State on Sept. 28.

Homecoming activities, along with the second annual “Wine Tasting with the Aggies” will be featured on Oct. 12 when UCD hosts Montana.

Parent and Family Weekend activities surround the Nov. 2 showdown with Cal Poly and the annual “Salute to Heroes” (and Senior Day) will be part of the home finale with North Dakota on Nov. 16.

Activities before each of the promotional games begin three hours before kickoff and include performances by the Cal Aggie Marching Band-uh, Aggie Spirit Squad and Aggie mascot Gunrock.

Also new this season with first-year head coach Ron Gould is a “Victory March” through the North Field two hours before game time, allowing Aggie fans to cheer on the UCD football team as it makes its way to the Bob Foster Team Center to begin preparations for the game.

More information on tailgating policies and locations, a complete promotion schedule and season and single-game football tickets are available at www.ucdavisaggies.com.

Notes: For the third straight week, five Big Sky teams are ranked in both major Football Championship Subdivision polls. Eastern Washington remained second and Montana State remained third in both polls. North Dakota State is first. Towson is fourth in both, and Sam Houston State is fifth. Montana is 11th in The Sports Network’s poll and 15th in the Coaches’ Poll. Cal Poly is 14th in both polls. The Aggies’ Saturday opponent, Northern Arizona, is 24th in the Coaches’ Poll and ranked 25th by The Sports Network. Southern Utah received 18 votes in the Coaches’ Poll, and sits at 27th. The Thunderbirds earned 185 votes in The Sports Network’s poll — 28th overall. … NAU senior running back Zach Bauman enters Saturday’s game at UCD with 3,747 career rushing yards. He needs just one yard to move into a tie for 10th place in conference history with Idaho’s Sherriden May (1991-94). Bauman needs just 48 yards to tie Marcus King for the Lumberjacks rushing record of 3,794 yards.
