Helping to kick off the 2017 football season, Miami University Athletics is hosting its annual Pigskin Preview on Saturday, Aug. 19.

The 2017 RedHawks will take the field at 9 a.m. (estimated time) for stretching and drills before giving fans a sneak peek at the team during a two-hour practice. An autograph session with selected players will take place on the field following the festivities.

Throughout the morning, Miami Athletics host its One Stop Shop in the south end of Yager Stadium for all of your 2017 football needs. Fans have the opportunity to purchase season tickets, sign up for Swoop's Kids Club, purchase merchandise from the new adidas shop, sign up for the Red & White Club and purchase parking passes to the Red Zone. Activities for kids will also be available in the northeast corner of the stadium from 8 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.

One of the highlights of the day will be a pig roast at 12:30 p.m. with Head Coach Chuck Martin and the Miami football team. Cost is $15 for adults and $10 for youth (ages 13-17) with kids 12 and under FREE! Current Miami students can show their ID and get in for just $10. A limited number of walk-up tickets will be available, at a price of $20 for all day-of-sale patrons. The pig roast will take place under the east stands at Yager Stadium.

All events for the day other than the pig roast are free to the public.

Free parking will be available for the event. Several lots around the stadium will be available for the Pigskin Preview. The Yager West Lot (M Lot) and lots next to the Dauch Indoor Sports Center will be open and are accessible via the 732 (Gate 3) entrance as well as Weeb Ewbank Way off of Sycamore Street (Gate 1). The Yager East parking area as well as the Yager Grass Lot and Hannon Park Lot also will be open and are accessible via Bonham Road (Gate 4). The main portion of the West Millett Lot will be closed off, however, the RV Lot (lot closest to Sycamore St.) will be available as well with golf cart service to the stadium for those who need it.
