Mercer Village will become game day headquarters on Saturday.
The Mercer Maniacs and the Office of Campus Life and Student Involvement are hosting a watch party for the upcoming away game against Auburn University.
The free event, which is open to the public, is from noon-8 p.m. in Mercer Village. Montpelier Avenue from Linden Avenue to Winship Street will be closed. Attendees can bring food and tailgating supplies, and nearby restaurants will be selling food.
Before the 4 p.m. match-up, Mercer’s marching band will perform, and a big screen will be tuned to ESPN. In the event of bad weather, the event will be canceled.
