CWRU | First Year

Gear up! Spartan football home opener Saturday

Get your blue on, and get ready to cheer for the Spartans as they take on the Grove City College Wolverines in the first home football game of the 2017-18 season Saturday.

The Spartans are coming off a 34-14 victory in their first week on the road against Chicago, following a 9-1 campaign in 2016, including a University Athletic Association Championship with a 2-1 conference record, and a second-place finish in the Presidents’ Athletic Conference with a 7-1 league record. CWRU is returning 60 players from last year’s team, including 21 starters, and has added 44 newcomers to the squad.

Kickoff is at 7 p.m., but head to the Village early to take in pre-game festivities, and pick up your Spartans t-shirt, courtesy of the Office of First-Year Experience and Family Programs, while they last!
