September 29, 2042


The Mitakihara Homecoming Committee released the schedule for Mitakihara Homecoming 2042: Here We Go!. Richard "Rip" Jagger, the grandson of the late Sir Mick Jagger and a freshman music major, is the Homecoming Committee Chair. Jagger was excited about the events taking place on Homecoming Week.

"For me, to represent the Jagger family and the legacy of the Rolling Stones is a massive honour for me," Jagger said in an interview at Magia Quad on Monday. "And to preside and oversee the organization of this great tradition is even sweeter. Everyone at this university is hyped up about our sports teams and the opportunity to win conference championship and national titles. 

"The football team, however, is the main draw here on campus, and whenever the guys get on the field at Mitakihara Stadium, three simple words sum it up: Here We Go!. That is the theme for this week's Homecoming, dedicated to fun, partying and a celebration of life. We're hyped up. Here We Go!"

A number of events will take place leading up to the Homecoming Game against the Wyoming Cowboys on October 3, 2042 at 12:30 p.m. PT/3:30 p.m. ET. The game will be televised by TSN, ESPN, NHK and BBC.
