Homecoming 2022

Imagine it. The crisp air on your cheeks, the roar of the crowd around you, the vibration of the stands under your feet, the boom of the cannon at kickoff! We are excited to cheer on the Pokes as they take on the Utah State Aggies for the Homecoming game! Maybe you're an alum returning for your reunion, the parade, and the game, or you're a student and your club has a float in the parade and you cheer on the Pokes from the student section.  The game is just one of the many exciting activities planned for Homecoming 2022, and we can’t wait to celebrate with you!
