Before you hit the stadium, hit the classroom!

Prior to a number of home football games, the Office of Alumni Affairs provides alumni and friends with a chance to sample intellectual life on campus prior to catching up with classmates at tailgates and cheering on the Tigers on the gridiron.

On the morning of the fall football contest against Yale and the Tiger tailgate, November 14, 2015, head back to the classroom for a Fall Football Lecture. Hear from Nolan McCarty, Susan Dod Brown Professor of Politics and Public Affairs and Chair, Department of Politics on "Party Polarization, Economic Inequality, and the 2016 Election." The one-hour lecture will take place from 10:00 a.m. in McDonnell Hall, room A01.

We invite you to visit our Fall Football Lecture series video archive to view lectures given in previous years.
