5th Quarter makes a comeback

A free party is being hosted after the Utah-Northern Arizona football game Saturday, and you’re invited.

The event, titled 5th Quarter, will feature free food, live bands and an opportunity to meet U football players. A 5th Quarter celebration will be held after every home football game, excluding homecoming.

The party, which starts immediately after the game, will be held in the parking lot of the LDS Institute of Religion, just east of Rice-Eccles Stadium.

A different campus group will host each 5th Quarter, and student leaders who helped organize the event hope it will become a tradition of school spirit.

“I think it will really pull campus together,” said Rick Pehrson, a student organizer of the campus party.

Former U football coach Urban Meyer originally tried to introduce the 5th Quarter post-game party during the 2004-2005 season, but the event never caught on, Pehrson said.

This time, however, Pehrson said 5th Quarter has ample support from a handful of campus organizations.

Groups that will host 5th Quarter later this fall include the MUSS, the Presidents’ Office, The Associated Students of the University of Utah, the Union and the Residence Halls Association.

Between 3,000 and 5,000 students are expected to attend. A valid UCard is required for entry.
