Homecoming 2014 begins with the Guelph Gryphons taking on the Queen’s Gaels on Sept. 20 at 1 p.m. at Alumni Stadium.

The annual alumni football game, called the Glory Bowl, will take place at 10 a.m. For the Gryphons match, stadium gates will open at 11:30 a.m., with both a pre-game concert and a half-time show by Toast and Jam, a two-member acoustic band.
