UH announces promotions for Saturday's football game

Advertiser Staff

The University of Hawaii has announced a handful of promotions for Saturday's nationally televised game between UH and Oregon State at Aloha Stadium.

Game time was moved to 7:05 p.m. to accommodate ESPN.

UH (10-2) is riding a school-record nine-game winning streak.

Oregon State (8-4) is the only team so far to defeated Southern California, ranked No. 2 in the nation.

Despite the kickoff being an hour later than usual, the parking gates will still open at 2:30 p.m. and the stadium turnstile gates at 3 p.m.

Green-out Night

Saturday's "Senior Night" game has been designated a "Green Out" and all fans are encouraged to wear green shirts in support of the Warriors and their talented senior class.

19 Seniors to be honored

Nineteen senior football players will be honored during a special post-game ceremony this Saturday for their contributions to the UH program. Fans are encouraged to remain in their seats following the game as these student-athletes are introduced during the traditional "Senior Walk."

30,000 Ti Leaves to be distributed

The first 30,000 fans to enter Aloha Stadium for the Oregon State football game will receive a ti leaf, compliments of game-sponsor First Hawaiian Bank.

Disneyland & Inter-Island trips to be awarded

First Hawaiian Bank will provide an inter-island trip for two on Aloha Airlines to the winner of the pre-game field-goal kicking contest and a trip for four to Disneyland (including Aloha Airlines flight, hotel, and rental car) to the winner of the "Dash to Disneyland" halftime contest during the game. Fans can register at Gate 3 prior to the game.

Las Vegas trip promotion for UH students

UH students can register at Gate 7 for the opportunity to win a trip to Las Vegas and other great prizes, compliments of First Hawaiian Bank and Vacations Hawaii.

One student will be drawn from those who register to compete in a contest on the field between the third and fourth quarters. Thus far this season, two UH students have won trips to Las Vegas.

UH students ride free

The Chancellor's Office will provide free bus transportation to the game. The buses will pick up UH students on Dole Street in front of the Gateway House two hours before game time. The buses will leave the stadium 30 minutes after the game and return to the Gateway House. Signup sheets will be at the front desks at each UH residence hall.

2-For-1 tickets for military

Two tickets for the price of one (maximum of 12) to military personnel (active and reservists) are available for the game. A valid military identification card is required when purchasing tickets at Aloha Stadium in advance or on game day. At the Stan Sheriff Center, this discount is only available in advance (Monday–Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.). Tickets are in special sections and supply is limited, so advance purchases are encouraged. Other restrictions may apply.
