As many were tailgating and preparing for the game the RallyCats arrived at 4pm to set-up the “Bring the Ruckus” towels and “The rUCkus” Under Armour T-Shirts! The gates opened at 5:30pm and the festivities began. The student section AKA The Ruckus was filled to capacity by 7:00pm.
Unfortunately, the Bearcats took a slip before the game even began:

The stars of the game were the Ruckus! The student section brought their A game all night and created a very exciting and intimidating atmosphere:
And to top it all off, the Ruckus stormed the field!
