Bear Down Friday a Day Early This Week

Catch the University of Arizona spirit tonight during a Throwback Thursday edition of Bear Down Friday at Main Gate Square from 5-7 p.m.

The rally is a day earlier than usual so fans can cheer the UA Men’s Basketball team before the season opens tomorrow. Wear your favorite retro UA gear for a chance to win prizes. The 1997 NCAA Men’s Basketball National Championship Traveling Trophy will also be on display.

A pep rally begins at 6 p.m. and features the Pride of Arizona marching band, Wilbur and Wilma, UA cheerleaders, the pom squad, and twirlers. Various UA coaches make guest appearances at each pep rally. Main Gate Square on University Boulevard features more than 30 restaurants and 25 retailers. The area is easily accessible via the Sun Link streetcar.
