Budweiser Clydesdale Horses to lead UTSA Pre-Game Spirit Walk

This’ll be fun for the kids and grown ups alike! This Saturday’s game versus Tulane will have several extra feet on the ground. The legendary Budweiser Clydesdale Horses will be included in UTSA’s Pre-game Spirit Walk. The majestic beauties will begin their journey on Commerce Street. They will then turn on Hoefgen, pick up Coach Coker and the team, and march to the Alamodome.

Don’t be tardy! The Spirit Walk takes place 2 ½ hours before each home game. The horses are tacking an extra 10 minutes on, so the scheduled start time is 10:20. Write that down! Grab the kids, abandon whatever it is you are doing, and get to the North End of the Alamodome, and walk towards Sunset Station. Personally, I like to stand on the brick path, situated between a gated parking lot, and where some Greek organizations tailgate. This spot makes for good photos, too. A lot of people don’t attend the Spirit Walk for whatever reason, but I enjoy it a lot. There’s so much energy and electricity in the air. Fans cheer loudly, the band is playing, the cheerleaders, spirit team, and color guard are all cheering and waving their flags exuberantly. The sights and sounds really heighten the overall ( Alamodome/UTSA/tailgate/team & fan comradery) experience.

Here are the details you need to write down: UTSA v Tulane, Alamodome, 1pm. All Veterans and current service members will be honored during the game. Clydesdale Horses will march down to the ‘Dome, starting at 10:20am. (FOR EVERYONE’S CONVENIENCE, THEY WILL STAY AT THE NORTHERN ENTRANCE TIL 12.) Permit parking lots, A, B, & C open at 8am. Most other ‘pay’ parking lots open between 8 and 9. Park & Ride shuttle services are conveniently located throughout the city.

This game will be locally televised at 1pm, on WOAI.

About Laurie (43 Articles)
A true southern girl at heart, Laurie was raised to love football. Her years at Mississippi State really developed her passion for everything gameday: Getting primped and polished in über-cute outfits, tailgating with new and old friends, fans clanging cowbells with great exuberance while the Bulldogs play great football inside Davis Wade Stadium. Laurie is a huge fan of Coach Mullen, his wife, Megan, and the team he has built. Could this team have a Heisman candidate??… After moving to Texas and marrying a fellow football fan who graduated from UTSA, she was thrilled when UTSA announced its plan to build a football program. The Athletic Director, Mrs. Lynn Hickey, has done a phenomenal job and has a large fan following, including Laurie. Laurie has been a season ticket holder since the first season, and has loved watching the team grow. Laurie loves to be crafty at times. Hand-painted glasses for both teams fill her cabinets, team wreaths hang on her front door. Her blue and orange feathered sombrero makes it to every UTSA game, loud and proud. Laurie has a B.S. in Marketing, and a Minor in Apparel, Textiles, and Merchandising from Mississippi State University.
