Battle of the Bulldogs to Benefit Charity

Southwestern Oklahoma State University Student Government Association is hosting its fourth annual Battle of the Bulldogs during Homecoming activities through November 4 on the Weatherford campus.

Battle of the Bulldogs is a combination of different events that student organizations, clubs and individual groups compete to win points.  Whichever team has the most points at the end of the week gets to donate the winnings to the charity of their choice.

Eight teams will compete in the events during the week. The schedule includes:

  • Monday, October 30, at 6 p.m.: The week starts at the Wellness Center for the Bulldog Olympics. The Olympics include a series of lawn games like three-legged race, corn hole and many others.
  • Tuesday, October 31, at 6 p.m.: Teams square off at the infamous lip sync battle in the Fine Arts Center. The public is invited to come, watch and help the judges pick the winner.
  • Wednesday, November 1, at 8 p.m.: Trivia Night will be held in Stafford Center 104. Teams answer a series of questions in order to win points for their team.
  • Thursday, November 2: SWOSU Volleyball will compete against ECU in a Great American Conference rivalry game at 7 p.m. in the Pioneer Cellular Event Center. Immediately following the volleyball game, the annual Battle of the Bulldogs Bonfire will take place at the Rogers and Jefferson Resident Halls fields.

The bonfire will include the cheer & pom teams, SWOSU band and a couple of speeches from football team members. SGA will also announce the winner of Battle of the Bulldogs and the charity of their choice. A canned food drive will also take place at the bonfire and everyone is encouraged to participate.

Everyone is invited to attend all the events.
