Volleyball teams set to host Miami, Oregon State at Redbird Classic
On the same day that the Illinois State football team hosts Dayton in the season opener, the Redbird volleyball team will host a pair of tough teams in Miami and Oregon State at the Redbird Classic at Redbird Arena.
Illinois State will open play in the four-team tournament Friday, August 31, against Presbyterian before playing a double-header against the two BCS opponents Saturday, September 1. The Redbirds will face off against the Hurricanes at 10 a.m. that morning, before taking a break facing the Beavers at 7 p.m.
Fans wanting to catch both volleyball games and the football game are encouraged to call the Illinois State Athletics Ticket Office at (309) 438-8000 to secure seats for all three events.
