The park­ing lot at Ferris State was boom­ing with excited fans who were ready to wel­come the new foot­ball sea­son with a tailgate.

Approximately 100 stu­dents, fac­ulty, staff and com­mu­nity mem­bers came together to cel­e­brate the first Ferris home foot­ball game of the year. Attendees tossed foot­balls back and forth, played corn­hole and socialized.

Ferris sopho­more pro golf man­age­ment major Zeke Fulgencio pre­dicted a good sea­son for Ferris football.

“If Ferris wins today, I think they’ll have a good year,” Fulgencio said.

Ferris defeated Lake Erie College with a final score of 56–49.

For some stu­dents, this was their first tail­gate at Ferris State.

“I’ve never tail­gated here, only at Grand Valley,” Ferris junior Jenna Bailey said. “The fans aren’t as involved here.”

Ferris junior psy­chol­ogy major Jason Wozniak has tail­gated a lit­tle in past years, at not only Ferris, but other uni­ver­si­ties, as well.

“Let’s be hon­est though, I’d rather be at U of M,” Wozniak said. “I like the size of the crowd and the friend­li­ness there.”
