CARROLLTON, Ga. – With the football home opener headlining the weekend, UWG Athletics will be in for a busy weekend. The UWG Athletic Department is set for another Big Blue Friday tomorrow, September 20 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at American Pie Pizzeria on Maple Street.

Big Blue Friday is a chance for those in the community and students to come together and kickoff a big weekend leading up to the athletic events that will be on campus. This is a great chance to interact and socialize with those in the community and those in UWG Athletics.

The home opener football game will kickoff at 7 p.m. under the lights at Ra-Lin Field for the first time this year where the 15th-ranked Wolves will be taking on the Albany State Golden Rams.

On Sunday, UWG soccer hosts Georgia College. It’s the second home game of the year for the Wolves and the final non-conference matchup of the season. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. from University Field as UWG takes on GCSU in a final tune-up before the start of Gulf South Conference play next weekend.

Remember that students get in free with their valid student ID to every home UWG athletics event. On Saturday, residential freshman with their Family and Friends coupon will be given two free general admission tickets to use along with their free admission with valid student ID.
