Military Appreciation Day is Saturday on the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor campus in Crusader Stadium.

This annual tradition draws hundreds of soldiers and their families from across Central Texas.

Activities throughout the game will pay tribute to members of the military and celebrate UMHB’s partnership with the 4th Sustainment Brigade.

Active-duty military and their families can enter through Gate 1 where they can (with a valid military ID) pick up not only free admission to the game but also concession tickets redeemable for free hot dogs and drinks. Kickoff is at 1 p.m. Crusader Stadium opens at 11 a.m. For nonmilitary fans, reserved seats are $10 and general admission seats are $8.
