UW-Stevens Point to host "Pink Game"


UW-Stevens Point football fans will be seeing a lot of pink this weekend. It's the third annual Pink Game.

That means players won't be wearing their usual purple and gold.

Stevie Pointer, the UW-Stevens Point mascot modeled the jerseys. It's all to raise money for the Susan G. Komen foundation—which supports breast cancer research.

The football coach says it's an important fundraiser for the team.

"Have a great cause because everyone is impacted by cancer, whether it's personally themselves, or with a family member. We're going to raise a lot of money to prevent this disease," UWSP Football Coach Tom Journell said.

It is also the Spud Bowl—the first 1,000 fans will get a free baked potato.

The football team plans to auction off the pink jerseys after the game.
