Ram Rallies, Football Fridays, & Tailgates

Rally with the Rams!

Join alumni and Rams fans for rallies and tailgates before every football game.

Home Games

Join us for Football Fridays and game-day tailgates at the new Iris & Michael Smith Alumni Center on the northeast corner of the new stadium. The Smith Alumni Center will be open from 4–7 p.m. every Friday before home games (excluding Oct. 13). The evening will feature music, activities, special guests, and food and beverage for purchase. 

Carry your green and gold spirit into Saturday with Smith Alumni Center tailgates. Home game tailgates will begin four hours prior to kick off, with festivities closing thirty minutes before game time. Gather with friends and family, bring the kids, enjoy live music and activities indoors and outdoors, grab a selfie with CAM, and more. Food and drink will be available for purchase, and entry is free!
