Join Brisson as we hoist the tents and raise the Knight flag at every Knight football game, rain or shine, favored or underdog, two hours before kickoff. All are welcome to stop by and enjoy pre-game camaraderie and have a bite to eat. Bring your cooler with favorite beverage and/or favorite football recipe. Located at UT Stadium Lot Area 10 at the Northeast Corner near Ottawa River and Stadium Drive, the popular tailgates are a great place to meet other SFS parents, alumni, teachers and friends of St. Francis.
