The game against Bethel will begin with a pre-game show, The Tiger Tailgate Show, at 6:30 p.m.

Kickoff between the Tigers and Wildcats was moved to one minute past the top of the hour to honor the late head coach, Ron Finley. This tradition started in 2017 and will be respected every year after.

Finley started the program in 1987, and he was a stickler for the motto, “If you are early, you’re on time and if you are on time, you are late.” He used this reverse psychology on his players and never started a practice at the top or bottom of the hour.

Campbellsville is seeking to win its first Homecoming contest since the 2015 season when the Tigers defeated University of Pikeville, 42-34. CU has lost the previous two – Bethel University in 2016 (59-53) and Georgetown College in double-overtime last season, 31-24.
