Homecoming & Family Day

Saturday, September 24 (Full schedule)

This year’s USF Homecoming football game is scheduled for Saturday, September 24 as the Cougars take on Lindenwood University-Belleville (Ill.) at Bishop D’Arcy Stadium at noon. But as always, the fun will begin early with the Cougar Tailgate. Come visit the USF Alumni House as all of the university schools will be represented and they’ll be offering a variety of food and fun activities to get everyone revved up for the big game. The USF Marching Pride and our Cougar Cheer Team will be on hand to spread that Cougar Spirit!

Alumni athletes will also relive the spirit of competition during special basketball and soccer exhibitions. More details about these games and how to participate will be available soon.

Immediately after the game, a Cougar Block Party will be presented through the evening. Fun for all ages will be happening at the USF Alumni House with carnival games, a bonfire, and special treats available for purchase. Mass will once again be offered at 4 p.m. and the day will be capped off as the USF Cougar soccer team takes the field for a 7 p.m. contest with Goshen College.
