The Homecoming Court will be presented at halftime of the football game, which starts at 6:30 p.m.
"Following a year in which the COVID-19 pandemic forced cancellation of the Homecoming celebration, we are expecting upwards of 2,000 participants from alumni, many of whom are retired, and townspeople," says Angela Furr, Co-Lin Foundation and Alumni Relations Director.
Furr said the tailgate party with its new location beside the stadium, free food and musical entertainment will be a big event with community as well as alumni participation. There will be no Saturday events this year facing competition from non Co-Lin events in the area, she added
