HAYS, Kan. -- The Fort Hays State University Alumni Association is sponsoring a send-off for the FHSU football team Thursday, Dec. 1, when the Tigers leave town for the C.H.A.M.P.S. Heart of Texas Bowl.

The Tiger team will board buses at noon for the trip to Copperas Cove, Texas. FHSU staff, students and faculty, along with the general public, are invited to wish the team well as it heads into its second consecutive bowl game.

Fans are asked to meet at 11:45 a.m. just outside Lewis Field Stadium.

The Tigers take a 7-4 overall record into Saturday's 6 p.m. game vs. Eastern New Mexico University. The game will be streamed on ESPN3 (WatchESPN or ESPN apps), or fans can listen to the game on KJLS (FM) 103.3.

FHSU is looking to become the first team in Tiger football history to win a postseason game. A victory over ENMU also would tie the school record for most wins in a season.
