Homecoming: Hornet pride in overdrive

Homecoming 2013 was truly memorable, with Hornet spirit on display through a week of activities for students, alumni and the community. Saturday's culminating events were a perfect backdrop for about 2,000 prospective students and their parents to check out the campus on Future Hornet Day. That afternoon, tailgaters filled the parking lot in green and gold celebration - and were later rewarded in Hornet Stadium with a 37-21 victory over Northern Colorado.
