2-4 p.m. Tours of the Michael A. Evans Center for Health Sciences. 

4:30 p.m. The gates at St. Vincent Health Field open. The first 500 students in the gate receive a free t-shirt to wear at the game; the first 1,000 people through the gate will receive a rally towel commemorating the 2012 national championship. 

5 p.m. Greet the team as they make the walk from the P.E. Center to St. Vincent Health Field. 

6 p.m. Be in your seat for a pre-game ceremony honoring last year’s national champions.
