Rockets to honor All-Century Team at halftime of Sept. 16 football game

The University of Toledo will honor members of its All-Century Football Team at halftime of the Saturday, Sept. 16, game vs. Tulsa in the Glass Bowl.

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.

Approximately 25 of the 50 members of the All-Century Team are expected to be in attendance at the game, along with some former head coaches. Among those expected to attend are former quarterbacks Chuck Ealey and Bruce Gradkowski, who finished No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, in an online vote by fans in May. Others who will be recognized at halftime are Mel Long (No. 4), Curtis Johnson (No. 9), Eric Page (No. 11) and Tom Beutler (No. 13). Former head coaches Jack Murphy, Gary Pinkel and Tom Amstutz also will be among the honorees.

UT is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the founding of its football program in 1917. Free posters honoring the milestone will be available at the Fan Experience Table on the west concourse and also will be distributed at the exits at the end of the game.

Also, the first 1,000 UT students who enter the game will receive a free 100-Year Anniversary pop socket.

In addition, Campus Activities and Programs (CAP) will give away 250 100-Year Anniversary baseball caps to UT students throughout the game.

Tickets can be purchased at the UT Athletic Ticket Office, online at utrockets.com or by calling 419.530.GOLD (4653). Tickets are half-off for UT employees and retirees, and UT students are admitted free to home games with ID.
