Celebrate before the NIU football game with us from 5 to 7 p.m. PDT Saturday, Sept. 30, at the Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego at the pregame reception, where you'll be served a full dinner buffet and a host bar with beer, wine and soda. We have lots of options for you to enjoy the festivities and game, which kicks off at 7:30 p.m. PDT.
