The TP game will be Wednesday, November 1, 2017, as the Golden Norsemen open up the season against Central Baptist College from Conway, Ark.   

“This is a fifth year to do it and it is definitely one of our most popular games,” said Dustin Grover, head coach of the Golden Norsemen. “We will receive a technical foul for the disturbance, but it is a foul that I am willing to give up to keep our fans, players, and students engaged.”

Toilet paper games are traditional at schools around the nation and when the Golden Norsemen score the first point of the season, the crowd will throw rolls of toilet paper onto the court. Rolls of toilet paper will be handed out after the Lady Norse game.
