Concession stands will be open on Aug. 17 and fans can begin entering the stadium from Gates 1, 4, 6, 15 and 18 as early as 8:30 a.m.

The second practice will be open on Verizon Fan Day, which takes place afterward from 3-6 p.m. at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center. Members of the football and volleyball teams will be available to sign autographs for fans on posters passed out at the event.

    Really like this move. It gets the players excited for practice and gets the fans excited for football. The whole closed practice ploy from Urbs just sucked.
