KU Fall Pep Rally Planned for Next Saturday (Oct. 3) in Olathe

Sept. 26, 2009

The nationally ranked Jayhawk football team has October 3 off, but Kansas fans don’t have to take the day off.

KU men’s basketball coach Bill Self will headline a KU pep rally — sponsored by Kansas Athletics and the KU Alumni Association — next Saturday, October 3, at Johnny’s at K-10 and Ridgeview in Olathe. The rally will start at 5 p.m. with a street dance (music by RockDaddy) to follow.

This family-friendly KU event will have inflatables for kids, merchant giveaways and plenty of KU flair. Self will discuss the upcoming basketball season, and information will be available about the KU Gridiron Club, the 3,000-seat club-seating facility planned for the east side of Memorial Stadium. In addition, the KU pep band and spirit squad will perform.
