Home for Homecoming Tailgate — Lobo Pride Nationwide

The Homecoming theme for 2020 is “Connected by the Unexpected,” and the UNM At-Home Tailgate is an opportunity for every Lobo across the US to gather in the smaller groups we’ve all become accustomed to, share memories, food and good times with our close ones, and most of all — showcase our Lobo Pride!

Join us October 3, 2020, from your driveway, living room, garage, back yard, or the great outdoors, as we come together as a Pack — from across the street or across the globe — and celebrate The University of New Mexico and its past, present and future.

And we’re here to help you plan the party!

Not sure where to get started? Here’s our Lobo Pride Nationwide Official Tailgate Checklist:

  • Friends, family and Lobo fans (gathering only if adhering to COVID-19 safe practices)
  • Masks, hand sanitizer, and knowledge of your state’s COVID-19 regulations
  • Set a reminder to watch the Lobo Rewind Football Game
  • Food and refreshments — Submit your favorite tailgate recipe here for a chance to win a $50 gift card to Target! The winner’s recipe will be featured in the October 1 issue of The Howler, and one runner-up will receive a $30 gift card to the UNM Bookstore. Double your chances to win if your recipe has green chile in it!
  • Your Lobo Nation Tailgate Spotify playlists
  • Cherry party decorations to showcase your UNM Pride
  • Your UNM Homecoming 2020 yard sign
