The Hardrocker cheerleaders and Grubby mascot will be on hand to greet families. SD Mines chemistry students will show off some cool science you can try at home. KTEQ, the SD Mines student radio station, will sponsor live music throughout the day. Members of the student baseball club will clock pitching to see who has the fastest fast ball.

Free tailgate food grilled by the Rowdy Rockers student group will be offered at 4 p.m. The homecoming football game kicks off at 6 p.m. against Colorado State University - Pueblo. Game tickets are available at the gate or by calling the Hardrocker ticket office at (605) 394-2351.
