DAVENPORT, Iowa-- It's hard to get college kids up out of bed at 5 a.m. any day of the week, but when it's homecoming weekend, it may be even more difficult. Nonetheless, the St. Ambrose University marching band, cheerleading squad and color guard all showed up Friday, Sept. 20 for our first-ever The Score Pre-Game Pep Rally at a college.
We held it inside the new Wellness and Recreation Center on campus.
It cost roughly $21 million and includes a field house, indoor track, weight room and an exercise physiology lab for students in their health and wellness programs. The new athletic director, Mike Holmes, talked about the center at the pep rally early Friday morning.
The Fighting Bees take on Sienna Heights University from Michigan on Saturday, Sept. 21 at 1 p.m. at Brady Street Stadium. The pre-game show starts at 12:40 p.m.
Friday night there's also a pep rally put on by the university at Lee Lohman Arena followed by an alumni reunion at the Circle Tap.
