Next, the Gorillas will host their annual Autograph Day activities in the Plaster Center from Noon to 1:30 p.m. The team will distribute and sign 2015 schedule posters for all fans. Come early as the autograph line grows fast!

Following Autograph Day, the excitement continues at 2:30 p.m. with Pitt State's first ever Tailgate Kickoff Event.

During this time, fans also can take self-guided tours of the Plaster Center and the new Weede Building renovations. Season tickets can be picked up at this time; and any fans wishing to purchase single game tickets for any of the first three games can do so during the event.
