Join Wayne State Athletics for a Homecoming Virtual Tailgate!

 Saturday, October 3rd from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.

The Homecoming at Home Tailgate is an effort for fans to come together and help celebrate Homecoming 2020.  Fans are asked to wear their green and gold and show their Warrior pride by hosting their own conferences or "tailgates" with their friends and families.  WSU Athletics encourages all fans to continue to follow national, state, and local guidelines regarding COVID-19.

Fans are encouraged to register their Zoom or Teams virtual tailgates for the chance to have a member of the Wayne State Football coaching staff and university officials pop in during the day.  Fans will also have access to custom Wayne State Warriors Zoom backgrounds to show off their Warrior Pride.

During the day, fans are also encouraged to share screenshots of their virtual tailgates to be entered into the Warrior Virtual Tailgate of the Game contest.  The screenshots must be shared on social media, using #WarriorVirtualTailgate to be considered.  The winner will receive a Wayne State Athletics fan pack with everything that you need on game-day including a beanie, a blanket, coffee mugs, foam finger, and a canvas bag.

From 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., exclusive content will be posted across the Wayne State Athletics social media channels, including videos, recipes from your Wayne State Athletics staff and coaches, and trivia contests.

The virtual tailgate will conclude with a special episode of Back on the Highway…Road Warriors Return Trip 2011 radio show featuring head coach Paul Winters and the voice of the Warriors, Sean Baligian.  The one-hour weekly radio show runs each Saturday and mirrors the 16 weeks of the 2011 national championship run.  Fans can listen to the show on 101.5 FM and AM 1400 The Patriot, patriotdetroit.com, and wsuathletics.com.
