The Govs football team hit the road to Memphis for their second game of the season. However, this time they were not alone. In addition to cheerleaders, the Governors own Marching band and the Pom squad, a bus of more than 50 Govs fans donned their red and white attire and rode to Memphis to cheer for the football team.

The bus was provided by Student Affairs.

One of the fans who took the three and a half- hour ride on the bus was freshman chemistry major Matthew Steele.

“I get to spend a day in Memphis and do nothing but watch a game of football” Steele said.

Steele and the rest of the Govs faithful hopped of the bus in Memphis in time for a tailgate party outside of the Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium.

The band, fans, cheerleaders and pom squad made up a small, but excited speck of red in a sea of blue Tiger loyalists.

Steele was a red and black painted symbol of Peay pride, one of many who spent Saturday, Sept. 17, in the Tiger’s den cheering for his team. TAS
