Dairy Drive to kick off home football slate
The South Dakota State University football team will open the home portion of its schedule Saturday night, hosting Cal Poly in the inaugural Dairy Drive.
Kickoff is 6 p.m. at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium.
Presenting sponsors for the Dairy Drive include Agropur, Bel Brands USA, Midwest Dairy Association and Valley Queen Cheese. The Dairy Drive game highlights the state’s dairy industry, which provides an estimated annual economic impact of $1.28 billion.
In conjunction with the Dairy Drive, Agropur and Davisco are sponsoring the Legen-DAIRY cheese tailgating competition. Tailgaters are encouraged to whip up their best recipe with the focus on cheese and dairy products. A judging panel in the Bowes Backyard will award cash prizes for the second- and third-place entries, with the top entry receiving a 40-pound block of cheddar cheese and a case of crackers.
Tickets for Saturday's game are available online at JackrabbitTickets.com or by calling 1-866-GO JACKS. The stadium ticket booths open at 4:30 p.m. Saturday.
