[005] Pigskin Pre-Game event kicks off MTSU football season Aug. 27

MURFREESBORO — The annual Pigskin Pre-Game will once again kick off the MTSU Blue Raiders football season for alumni and friends of the university.

A fundraiser for the Alumni Legacy Scholarship, the event will begin at 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 27, at The Grove at Williamson Place, 3250 Wilkinson Pike, just off Medical Center Parkway across from Embassy Suites Hilton near Interstate 24.

“Pigskin Pre-Game is a great fundraising event for a great cause, the Alumni Legacy Scholarship awarded to children or grandchildren of MTSU alumni,” said Paul Wydra, an MTSU Alumni Relations assistant director.

“We have awarded almost $50,000 in scholarships during the last five years, largely because of the support we receive from the community, our terrific sponsors and the MTSU faculty and staff for events like Pigskin Pre-Game every year,” Wydra added.

The increasingly popular craft beer breweries will be there to add to the evening’s festivities, Wydra said.

Tickets for the event will be $35 for adults. Children 12 and under are free. Those planning to attend must prepay and RSVP by 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 24, to secure the ticket.
