How can you compare the great national championship football teams of 1991 and 2001? You can’t…but you CAN see if any of these champs still have “game” on Homecoming Saturday as the Championship Challenge Flag Football Game pits players from the ’91 squad against those from ’01. Kick-off is 10 a.m., Sept. 24, on the Toyota Stadium field.

Players, you don’t have to pre-register to play; but we hope you will “Leave a Reply” on the website so that others will know you’ll be taking the field that day. (And, e-mail with your shirt size. For more information, e-mail  or call Austin, GC’s Assistant Athletic Director, at 502-863-8222.)

If you have children with you (players and spectators), enter them in the free Punt & Pass Competition at halftime of the flag football tussle. Pre-registration would help us a lot, but don’t stay away if you aren’t able to.

Then at 11 a.m., join our champions for a Tailgate Tent event by The Rock at the base of the hill by that leads up to the conference center and stadium.

Stay for the Homecoming Game at 1:30 p.m. as our Tigers play host to Mid-South Conference rival Shorter University of Georgia.

Still in the planning stages is a 7 p.m. Champions Reception – with heavy hors d’oeuvres and cash bar – at Hilton Garden Inn, 100 Grandstand Drive, which is off Cherry Blossom Way. There will be a slight fee (TBD).

Please check the Homecoming 2011 Calendar of Events often for updates. See you September 23-25!
