The Southern Oregon Raiders play their football home opener Saturday in Ashland, welcoming in Dickinson State.

There is a new tailgating area on the SOU campus to go along with the team’s hospitality area. For children, there is a climbing wall and those 12-and-under get into the game for free. Each seat gets free seat cushions too for the 1:05 p.m. kickoff; pregame festivities begin about two hours before the game.

SOU defeated Montana-Western at Spiegelberg Stadium in Medford to open the season and lost to Rocky Mountain last weekend.
