UA Homecoming weekend full of activities, football

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

It's Homecoming weekend and there is lots  of good stuff going on all weekend.

Festivities start and end the way any other game would – Football on Saturday, pep rally tonight, but for this weekend there is a lot more going on in between.

This evening will be the Bear Down pep rally on University Boulevard, the band, the cheer team, plus lots and lots of Wildcats.  But right after that things really start to heat up, with the bonfire at 7 p.m.  Head coach Rich Rodriguez and some of the players will be there, watching the flames shoot high in the air. 

Saturday has a full schedule as well – a tailgate on the UA Mall bright and early at 7:30 a.m.  There will be food, drinks and homecoming posters.  All in preparation for the parade to start off at 8 a.m., showcasing floats created by UA students. 

And of course all of this leads up to the football game against the Colorado Buffalo, with kick-off at 11:30 a.m. 

By chance, if you are not able to attend the game, it will be broadcast on FX. 

There is a complete list of activities on, plus you can follow on Facebook and Twitter.
