Find your old jersey, put on your favorite jeans, and get back on the field and in the fan stands to cheer on today’s Knights at they continue the traditions of yesteryear. The Battle for the Bell is a longstanding tradition and we are all going to be there to relive it. Will MAC keep the Bell? You will have to show up to find out!

We will have Band Alumni on the field. We will have Blue Brigade Alumni kicking up their heels. We will join the Spirit line as we flank the players as they enter the field. We’ll link arm and arm at the end of the game – honoring a tried and true tradition of the past – as we all join together, win or lose, to sing the school song.

Your ticket to the event gains you entry to the football game plus a good old fashioned Pre-Game Tailgate Party that includes food and drink as we mix and mingle before kickoff. You’ll see friends you’ve missed, enjoy a great football game, and take home a commemorative 60th Anniversary cap and event program.

What better way to honor your school and relive the glory days than to grab your school buddies and cheer on your team?

Not into football?
