UAB Athletics and Buffalo Wild Wings are looking for the most enthusiastic Blazer fans and want to recognize and reward UAB tailgaters for the fun they bring to every game. Tailgate Wars will take place at every home game and will be scored by traveling judges. Tailgates will be based on the following criteria: UAB Blazer visual presence (decorations, fan apparel, etc.), food, games and entertainment, enthusiasm, overall presentation and the number of people in attendance. To be eligible for prizes, tailgaters must register at https://blazergameday.com/_forms/tailgate-wars/.
Alcohol will once again be sold at Legion Field to fans 21 years of age and older. The purchase of alcohol will conclude at the end of the third quarter and UAB Athletics reminds fans to please drink responsibly. The ride-sharing pickup lot is located on the east side of Legion Field across the street from the Tabernacle Baptist Church on 6th Ct West.
