Each year, we host a tailgate 90 minutes before every home football game. The Alumni Association tailgate is located just north of Moore Bowl in the parkling lot. Look for "Washburn Alumni Association tents."
During tailgates, we serve hot dogs, chips, cookies, water and beer free of charge to dues-paid members of the Alumni Association. The cost is $5 for non-members.
