Atmosphere

FAU offers fans some of the best weather in the all of the country helping to ensure that you’ll have a great time when tailgating at FAU. The tailgates consist of a combination of hard partying FAU students as well as a more relaxed group of alumni who love to cook some delicious cuisine.  

The fans here at FAU take tailgating seriously particularly for a smaller school. Not only does FAU have a dedicated student tailgate area known as the Rat’s Mouth, but they also have plenty of traditions that show off their Owls pride.

You’ll have a great time partying with fellow Owls fans and taking part in FAU pregame traditions when tailgating before a game at FAU.

Traditions

Owlsley Statue

The Owsley statue located outside of FAU Stadium shows off the owl pride and provides a great photo op before the game. Also, make sure to rub his beak before the game to give the Owls some extra luck.

Owl Rally

One of the best pregame traditions to experience during your trip to FAU is the Owl Rally. Taking place approximately an hour and a half before kickoff this pep rally, featuring the FAU band and spirit squad, pumps up the crowd and gets everyone worked up into the frenzy before they even enter the stadium. The show takes place outside Gates 1 and 2, so make sure to stop by and participate in this excellent game day tradition.

Another great way for you to spend your tailgate experience is by taking part in the Owl Walk. Before every game, the Owls players and coaches walk to the stadium as everyone lines their path to greet them. The Owl Walk occurs two and a half hours before kickoff and is an excellent way for you to get into the game day spirit and show off your Owls pride.
