From staff reports
It's that time of year again Bobcat fans, the Ohio University BOBCAT BLACKOUT game is almost here!
This year's game will be the second annual BLACKOUT, and will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 8 p.m. when the Bobcats football team battles the Bowling Green Falcons on ESPN2.
Last year, the Ohio University Sports Administration Program and Ohio Athletics teamed up in an effort to BLACKOUT Peden Stadium in front of a nationally televised audience. Bobcat fans were given the opportunity to purchase the official BOBCAT BLACKOUT long-sleeve shirt, and the fans responded and created a sea of black in the stands while cheering on the Bobcats to a big win over Temple University.
This year's T-shirt package includes some of the same promotional items offered at last year's game, plus a little extra. In addition to the official BLACKOUT long-sleeved T-shirt, the BOBCAT BLACKOUT package includes a free round of golf at the Ohio University Golf Course, entry into a raffle to win an authentic BLACKOUT football jersey, a monogrammed BLACKOUT wristband, and free popcorn and a drink at the Oct. 19 and 20 Bobcats hockey games.
For Ohio University students, staff and faculty, the package costs $12. Non-student, staff and faculty members with a ticket to the Nov. 7 game can purchase the package for $15, and those needing a ticket to the game can purchase the BOBCAT BLACKOUT package for $20, which includes a general admission ticket to the game.
Bobcat fans can purchase the promotional packages online at
