The stands filled up, and the game got underway. It was an exciting first half, followed by a special halftime recognition for the members of the SJU 1965 NCAA championship football team, who gathered to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their winning season. The Johnnies rewarded fans with a Homecoming win over Gustavus, 49-27. The fun continued at the Celebration on the Tundra after the game. Kids lined up for inflatables, the peanut-butter-and-jelly booth was popular and many alumni and friends raised a glass together to SJU. A number of academic departments were on hand on the Tundra for the first time this year, joining the McCarthy and McNeely Centers, who have been regulars for several years. This was a great way for alumni to reconnect with faculty.

See you on Sept. 17 for the Johnnies vs. St. Olaf at Homecoming 2016.
