Vandals Host WAC "Play Up" Tour

Idaho's first nationally televised Western Athletic Conference game happens this Saturday as the Vandals host the University of Hawaii Warriors at 7pm in the Kibbie Dome, in a game that will be aired live on ESPN-U. In addition, this game marks the fifth stop of the WAC Play Up Tour, a campaign by the WAC to heighten awareness for the WAC brand as well as reinforce the association between the schools and the Western Athletic Conference.

The Vandals will indeed be Crashing the WAC this week as they open conference action against the University of Hawaii before a national television audience and the WAC Play Up Tour.

Game time at 7 p.m. in the Kibbie Dome will be the climax of a two-day buildup of activities featuring WAC commissioner Karl Benson who will make Moscow the fifth stop on his promotional tour of WAC members.

Benson's first public appearance will take place Friday afternoon when he stops by a barbecue being held in the parking lot of Precision Engraving (at the corner of Third and South Asbury Streets). The event will be hosted by Precision Engraving owner Dick Burroughs, who is a member of the Latah County Vandal Boosters Board of Directors. The menu will feature barbecue hot dogs and brats, chips and sodas compliments of Precision Engraving.

Saturday Benson and Roger Wilson of the WAC will be at the pre-game "tailgate" area (North field of the Kibbie Dome) from 4 to 7 p.m. to meet and greet Vandal fans. Vandal radio flagship station KHTR (104 fm in Moscow) will be broadcasting live from the WAC tent from 4 to 6 p.m. prior to the Vandal pregame show.

There will be plenty of free WAC merchandise given away Saturday including t-shirts, lapel pins, and Rally Towels. During the game Benson will present special commemorative WAC Play Up Helmets to University of Idaho President Dr. Tim White and Athletic Director Rob Spear.

Kickoff for the nationally televised game will be 7 p.m. The game will be telecast by ESPN-U, the Go Vandals TV network, and on KVFE in Honolulu.
