Kickoff time changed for Saturday's televised football game
MARYVILLE, Mo. - The Northwest Missouri State Bearcat football team travels to Omaha, Neb., Saturday, Sept. 18, to take on the University of Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks. Due to television coverage, the kickoff time for Saturday's game has been moved from 6 p.m. to 6:20 p.m.
For fans traveling to Omaha for the game, Saturday's tailgate sponsored by the Northwest Alumni Association will be from 4 to 6 p.m. at Elmwood Park on the UNO campus. The park is located just southwest of the visitor's side of Al Caniglia Field (UNO's stadium). Countryside Bistro of Maryville will be serving a catered meal for $7 per person. Fans may also do their own tailgating. Please bring your own lawn chairs and note that alcohol is against the park and campus rules.
Parking is available in the parking garage (also a short walk from the park) for a fee. There are also several free parking lots (in the park, in front of the field house, etc.). Parking is somewhat limited, so the earlier you arrive to the game the better. Click here for a UNO campus map.
Tickets may be purchased the day of the game or by calling 402.554.MAVS. The visitor's side is all general admission.
