Parents and their students will gather at a barbecue at Johnson Coliseum from 4:45-6:15 p.m. and the alumni office will sponsor its third pre-game picnic in the Bowers Stadium parking lot from 5-7 p.m.

The Bearkat football team will play Arkansas-Monticello at Bowers Stadium at 7 p.m.

Events continue Sunday with breakfast in the Belvin Hall cafeteria, from 8-10 a.m., and an interdenominational worship at the Recital Hall from 10:30-11:45 a.m.
