Today, the Creighton Athletic office started advertising that January 14th’s game against Southern Illinois will be a White-Out for the regional television audience on Fox Sports Net. The White-Out has been done in the past, but this year fans are being offered free White-Out t-shirts:
WHITE OUT FOR SOUTHERN ILLINOIS ON WEDNESDAY, JAN. 14
CU Athletics is requesting all fans wear a white shirt on Wednesday, Jan. 14 when the Bluejays host the Southern Illinois Salukis to create a “white-out” effect for the regional television audience. The game, which will tip-off at 7:05 p.m., and be played on First National Bank Court at Qwest Center Omaha, will be televised live regionally as the Missouri Valley Conference “Game of the Week” on Fox Sports Net Midwest. Fans can pick up free “White Out” T-shirts starting on Thursday, Jan. 1 by showing their game ticket at the Horseshoe Casino’s Total Rewards Center. While there, fans can also register for a chance to win a trip to St. Louis for the 2009 State Farm Missouri Valley Conference Men’s Basketball Championship to be held Thursday-Sunday, March 5-8 at Scottrade Center. The prize includes game tickets, hotel accommodations
and round-trip airfare.
So now people do not have an excuse to not wear white to the White-Out….of course unless you leave your shirt at home when you go to the game :) You can get your shirt as early as New Year’s Day!
Don’t be confused either…this is for the January 14th game against SIU, not the next home game against Northern Iowa on the 6th.
