Stanley Cup to appear at Homecoming

The Stanley Cup—the most revered sports trophy in the world—will be on display on campus October 16 as part of Homecoming. Chicago Blackhawks Executive Vice President Jay Blunk, a 1986 Illinois State alum, will accompany the cup to his alma mater as the honored alum representing the School of Communication.

Fans will get a good look at the cup as it becomes part of the Homecoming parade through campus, and in a special pregame ceremony at Hancock Stadium before the Redbirds take on the North Dakota State Bison in a Missouri Valley Football Conference game.
