Once a Knight, Always a Knight! We are family. 2. Knightro photo ops
He might scare kids, but Knightro was a hit among the crowd. 3. Students
Students packed the stands to cheer the Knights to another victory. 4. Tailgating
It was the perfect fall day for tailgating and football. 5. Class reunions
The Classes of 1961, 1966, 1971, 1976, 1986, and 1991 gathered for class reunions on Saturday night. 6. The halftime entertainment
