Special to 1808Delaware by Cole Hatcher

Enjoy a pre-game tailgate and then cheer on the Ohio Wesleyan University football team – all for free – during the October 9 Bishop Backer Fall Community Day at Selby Stadium, 45 S. Henry St. 9j Delaware.

The tailgate will begin at 11:30 AM with Delaware police officers and firefighters, and Ohio Wesleyan Public Safety officers grilling up free hotdogs and hamburgers for everyone attending the game. Then watch the Battling Bishops take on the Hiram Hornets at 1 PM.

“On behalf of the Bishop Backers, we’re excited to welcome the community back to campus for our free Fall Community Day,” said Doug Zipp, OWU athletics director. “We can’t wait to see the tailgate and the stands filled with football fans cheering on the Bishops.”

During the regular season, admission for ticketed OWU athletics events is $5 for adults and $3 for senior citizens, non-OWU students, and children 12 and over. Admission is free for Ohio Wesleyan students with a valid university ID.

Individual all-sports season passes also are available through the OWU Athletics Department at a cost of $50. Call (740) 368-3726 or visit battlingbishops.com for more information, including the Ohio Wesleyan’s complete fall athletics schedule.
