Bison Week looks to unite student body before ...
Bison Week is once again upon us, leading us up to the biggest game of the season: the Battle of the Boulevard.
“Bison week is an opportunity for students to build up the excitement for one of Lipscomb’s most epic events: Battle of the Boulevard,” said Stampede president TJ Ojehomon.
Here’s a look at what you can look forward to this week.
Monday: The HoopapaLUza pep rally will take place in Allen Arena at 9 p.m. The event will feature the Lipscomb Bisons basketball team and many prizes will be given out. The pep rally is also important for students because it’s where you can get your tickets to Friday’s Lipscomb vs. Belmont game.
Tuesday: Movie night will start at 7 p.m. in Zebi’s lounge. They will be showing V for Vendetta, since it’s conveniently November the 5th.
Wednesday: Wednesday Night We Eat will start in High Rise at 10 p.m. This week’s event will feature music from DJ Cottrill and also a push cart derby that starts at 11 p.m. Barbeque pork sandwiches will be served.
Thursday: The annual Running of the Bison will start in Bison Square at 9 p.m. It’s a Lipscomb tradition that goes back many years to lead up to the final event.
Friday: The Battle of the Boulevard will tip-off in Allen Arena at 6 p.m. Don’t forget to get your student ticket Monday night at HoopapaLUza.
“Like any athlete will tell you, before you play any game, you’ve got to warm-up. You’ve got to practice. You’ve got to get prepared,” said Ojehomon. “That’s what Bison Week is. It’s the warm-up to cheer for one of the greatest rivalries in college basketball.”
