1. King Tut’s Tomb
Stop and see King Tut’s Tomb outside Saluki Stadium before the game. The pyramid-shaped tomb contains the remains of Southern Illinois first live saluki mascot and is a must-see for any college football fan.
2. Live Mascot
Don’t miss the live saluki dog at Southern Illinois games. The dog is a fun part of any game, so keep your eyes peeled for him as you wouldn’t want to miss him.
3. Marching Salukis
The Marching Salukis are a can’t miss part of any Southern Illinois football game. The marching band will keep you pumped up throughout the game with their tunes and is a big part of what makes attending a Salukis football game such an excellent experience.
4. Saluki Statue
Before entering Saluki Stadium, stop by and snap a picture with the saluki statue outside SIU Arena. The statue is a must-see for anyone attending a game in Carbondale and offers an excellent photo op as well, so make sure to check it out.
5. Dawg Pound
Just like in Cleveland, the Dawg Pound is where you’ll find the rowdiest and wildest fans on game days. The Dawg Pound is filled with the most intimidating fans at the game, so if you want to get loud and support the Salukis, there is no better place to be than the Dawg Pound.
6. Brown Dog and Gray Dog
Southern Illinois has not one but two mascots who entertain fans on game days. Keep an eye open Brown Dog and Gray Dog when attending a Salukis football game as you never know what kind of shenanigans this duo will get into next.
7. Marching Salukis Show
Enjoy the Marching Salukis Show outside the stadium before the game. The show takes place on the SIU Arena steps and is a can’t miss part of the tailgating festivities at Southern Illinois.
