How to Game Day
Whether it’s the Running of the Freshmen, Homecoming, or a home game on a Saturday afternoon — the Dome is the place to be.
Here’s everything you need to know for College Football Saturday!
Find your outfit:
Every Lumberjack can show off their spirit with anything blue and gold.
A classic “Kiss My Axe” shirt works, or check out the Bookstore for more finds.
Face paint and stickers are always encouraged!
Or team up with your friends and show off your Lumberjack pride.
Head to the Dome
Home sweet Dome. When we’re here, we’re hard to beat. Head here and join the tailgate. Game day temps? 70 degrees 👏🏼
Show up early:
Before every home game, join the tailgate! Grab a bite to eat and chant along as the NAU Band and Cheer team make their way through the crowds.
Get your games on:
Cornhole is by far the most well-known game at any Lumberjack tailgate. Play in teams or individually and learn a new rule or two.
Don’t worry; this game is easy to play, and the Lumberjack community is always happy to help you learn how to master it.
There’s also plenty of room to toss around a frisbee or football. Just be careful not to drop your burger or hot dog on the pavement.
Get LOUD and cheer for your Jacks:
There’s nothing like packing the Dome and cheering the Lumberjacks on to victory! The pregame show by the band, dance team and cheerleaders leads to “the chop” signaling kickoff. From that moment, it’s game 🔛!
The Lumberjack spirit is undeniable as fans fill the seats and chants echo through the Dome. As each quarter passes, excitement fills the air.
Did you know: How we celebrate touchdowns
Each touchdown is greeted with the NAU fight song and the Logging team chopping a log.
We also have the ROTC Push up crew who do push ups to match the score 💪🏼
Game day in Lumberjack Country is one to look forward to every week. Grab your friends, grab some face paint and head to the tailgate and other pregame events! No matter how you spend game day, do it in true Lumberjack fashion.
