Beginning at 6 p.m., fans may enjoy pregame music provided by X103.9 FM, which plans to give away Pepsi products to those in attendance.
Halftime entertainment will be provided by the University of Redlands cheer team.
Throughout the game, the 2011 Volunteer Pep Band will supply musical complements to the on-field football excitement as well.
