We may still have a few more weeks of temperatures in the 90s but nothing signals the promise of fall like college football in the South. You may be looking forward to road-tripping to see your favorite NCAA team play next week, but for Lakeland, the season begins tomorrow!

Southeastern University will play the first game of its fifth football season Saturday, August 25. Do not underestimate the experience of attending a game at SEU’s Victory Field. With tailgating events, cheerleaders, drumline and their signature flamethrowers that signal a touchdown, there is plenty to entertain you, even if you aren’t quite a football fanatic.

Earlier this year The Lakelander‘s Sports issue explored the transformative effect the football program has had on Southeastern’s campus as well as it’s growth as a rallying point for hometown pride in Lakeland.
