Come out and support the Butler women's soccer team as it hosts its Breast Cancer Awareness Day Friday afternoon at the Butler Bowl. The Bulldogs will be honoring a couple of special guests and the first 150 students in attendance will be able to attend a free tailgate.
All fans are encouraged to wear pink in support of breast cancer awareness. The first 150 students in attendance will be able to attend a halftime tailgate, with each student getting a free hot dog, chips and a drink.
The match, against defending league champion Milwaukee, starts at 4:30 p.m. at the Butler Bowl.
Friday's festivities will begin with a ceremonial pregame coin flip featuring Butler women's basketball coach Beth Couture, who was diagnosed with breast cancer last spring. Couture, who has won 363 games in her career - including 105 at Butler - is set to have her cancer treatments completed in time to lead the Bulldog basketball team this season.
The women's soccer team will also be wearing pink warm-ups.
Also at halftime, the Bulldogs will honor Joy (Aschenbrener) Sweeney (1995-98), who was inducted into the Butler University Athletic Hall of Fame last spring.
