Temple football takes on Toledo in
home opener

More than 100 student athletes from other Temple sports programs will be there, collecting money for hurricane victims

Get to the games: A student's guide to the 2005 schedule

Temple athletics is offering Wild Cherry student passes this year. For $50, students get guaranteed free access to lower-level seating at all Temple home football, men's basketball and women's basketball games in special student sections, as well as eligibility to win prizes every game, a Wild Cherry T-shirt and priority access to road game transportation options (students can get free tickets with their Student Confirmation Cards, but without any of the perks). Wild Cherry student passes can be purchased at the Liacouras Center box office.

On home game days -- including this weekend -- Temple will be running buses to the team's home venue, Lincoln Financial Field in South Philadelphia, starting two hours before kickoff. Buses will pick up students at the Student Center, the 1300 residence hall and Johnson-Hardwick, then return to drop them off at the same locations after the game.

Another option is to ride SEPTA's Broad Street subway line south to Pattison Avenue, the line's last stop, which drops passengers off at the stadium complex.

When you get to the stadium complex, walk over to the HeadHouse Plaza. This week and Sept. 24, coaches and student athletes from other Temple sports programs will be there collecting monetary donations for the American Red Cross' Hurricane Katrina relief efforts. You'll also find music, food, nonalcoholic drinks, inflatable games, face painters, prize giveaways and more. Additional activities sponsored by GMAC -- including the chance to win a new car -- will be held at the Box Office area on the 11th street side of the stadium.

The athletics department is seeking student volunteers to assist with game-day promotions and other duties.

For more information, contact the Liacouras Center box office at 215-204-5040 or klyko@temple.edu.
