Raleigh, NC - A full slate of activities is planned in conjunction with the 2015 Kay Yow Spring Football Game, which will kick off at 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 11 at Carter-Finley Stadium. In addition to the action on the field, there will be music, food and the return of former Wolfpack players from the past seven decades who will be in town for their annual reunion.

Due to the threat of severe weather in the area, all of the Wolfpack Club BBQ Bowl events scheduled for Friday night have been cancelled. Saturday's festivities will be held as scheduled and the BBQ cookoff will operate on an alternate schedule.

Parking lots will open at 8 a.m. on Saturday, with events scheduled from 9 a.m. -- 1 p.m. in the RV lot. In addition to the Junior Wolfpack Club Fun Zone, former players will serve as celebrity judges for the BBQ Bowl at 9 a.m. and the band the Magic Pipers will provide musical entertainment all morning.

Stadium gates will open at 10:30 a.m. to give fans a chance to watch the second annual Wolfpack Football Classic Alumni Game, which will begin at 10:45 a.m. More than 60 former players have signed up to participate in this spirited event, with former Wolfpack and current NFL players Jerricho Cotchery and Earl Wolff serving as honorary coaches.

There will also be a Fan Zone located on the southeast concourse starting when the gates open.

Following the game, fans will be allowed on the field to visit briefly with the 2015 Wolfpack football squad and coaching staff.

Although admission is free, a minimum $1 donation per person is suggested upon entrance, with all proceeds going to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund and the Kay Yow Scholarship endowment. To date, the event has raised over $35,000 for those entities.

Parking is free to fans in the following lots: Stadium East, Stadium Southeast, Stadium West, Stadium North and Fairgrounds parking lots. Fans should enter through Gates A, B, C and Westchase. Due to another event on the PNC property, all other gates will be closed and other lots are subject to a parking fee.

At the game, fans will notice composting stations throughout the concourse. Next season, Carter-Finley will have recycling and composting as the University strives for zero-waste.

The Kay Yow Cancer Fund is a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization committed to being a part of finding an answer in the fight against women's cancers through raising money for scientific research, assisting the underserved and unifying people for a common cause. For more information click here.
