“The Butte College football team is looking forward to playing under the lights at Harrison Stadium,” said Craig Rigsbee, Butte College athletics director. “It’s an opportunity for the community to come out and watch some college football.

The Butte College Roadrunners will play Feather River College with kick off at 7:30 p.m. The half time show promises a few surprises by the Butte College Roadrunner mascot, Dash, along with some free items given to the first 200 people through the gates, and a free bounce house for children.
