Featured will be some intriguing regional matchups like the playoff rematch between West Texas and Chadron, plus bringing in a team that spent most of 2012 atop the national polls in CSU-Pueblo.”
A single day ticket is $25 for adults and $10 for students. The festival pass, which is good for admission all three days, is $40 for adults and $15 for students.
The festival has attracted more than 58,000 fans for nine games in its first two years, making it one of the best attended football events in all of Division II. Seven of those nine games have been televised, bringing broad exposure to LSC member institutions and their football teams.
