Redbird football watch parties planned for FCS quarterfinals

Denver Redbirds at the watch party last weekend.

After an exciting 36-19 win at home over Western Illinois, No. 2 Illinois State has advanced to the FCS quarterfinals! The Redbirds will get ready to face No. 7 Richmond at Hancock Stadium on Friday, December 11, at 6:30 p.m. (CST). Winning this game means an opportunity to host the FCS semifinals game at Hancock Stadium too!

For those that cannot attend the home game, a number of watch parties have been planned by Illinois State alumni in Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Atlanta, and Nashville. Fans can also catch the game on ESPN3.
