2017 Bahamas Bowl Travel Party ExperienceThe historic 2017 football season will go down in the archives of UAB as one of the most memorable. Beginning with the season opener at Legion Field to bowl eligibility, the team has outpaced expectations with a banner year. The united spirit of alumni, students, staff and fans has been incredible.

However, the season is not over. There are many fun activities planned for the days leading up to the 2017 Bahamas Bowl.

Wrap up the season by showing your Blazer Pride and "Be Seen in Green" at your workplace and on campus throughout bowl week. The UAB Staff Council "Street Team" will travel around campus on Thursday, December 21 between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. giving UAB swag to reward anyone showing their team pride by wearing UAB green.

An official team sendoff for the UAB Football team will be held outside the Legacy Pavilion and UAB Football Operations Center at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, December 18.

Heading to the Bahamas? Join the UAB National Alumni Society leading into the big game at a welcome reception, pep rally and pregame tailgate in Nassau.

Kickoff for the 2017 Bahamas Bowl is 11:30 a.m. CST. Can't make the game? Join other Blazer alumni and fans at watch parties at Iron City Grill and in the Hill Student Center Alumni Theater.
