UNT Alumni Association

In the spirit of Mean Green pride and fall football, the UNT Alumni Association is taking its tailgating festivities, Alumni GameDay Grille, to a new level.

Teaming with Athletics and the Crosson family, Alumni GameDay Grille will use the family’s decked-out Mean Green 18-wheeler — complete with a pop-up awning and big screen TV. Troy Crosson, whose daughter is a UNT sophomore, donated the use of his UNT-decorated Peterbilt tractor trailer truck last year.

Tailgating festivities at home games, including food and promotional give-aways, will begin three hours prior to kickoff near Fouts Field, adjacent to Mean Green Village, and wrap up 30 minutes before game time.

“We’re excited about partnering with the Crosson family and Athletics to build on last year’s Alumni GameDay Grille concept by bringing it into the heart of the activity between Mean Green Village and tailgating,” says Derrick P. Morgan, UNT Alumni Association executive director. “The truck will make an outstanding addition to our pregame parties, and the grille will be a terrific spot for alumni, students and friends to connect with one another.”
