Drake Bulldogs Football TicketsDrake University has a rich history in football dating back to 1893. The school and the football program have a tradition of making history. In 1922, the team was ranked No. 1 in the country, and it was invited to the White House as a result. In 1926, Babe Ruth visited this private university and played in a Drake football scrimmage in good fun. In 2011, the team participated at the very first college football game played in Africa at the Global Kilimanjaro Bowl. While Drake University remains a part of the Missouri Valley Conference, today, the football team is part of the Pioneer Football League (PFL). The PFL is for football teams only, and it is the nation’s only non-scholarship NCAA Football Championship Subdivision conference. The current members vary in school size and location, such as Butler University, Valparaiso University, the University of San Diego, Jacksonville University and Marist College.

Is tailgating permitted at Drake University?The tailgating experience for Drake Bulldogs football games is not quite like other colleges and universities since Drake University is in the middle of Iowa’s capital city, Des Moines. You will find some tailgating events held around campus, such as at Tennis Center parking lot or Hubbell Dining Hall; however, because there is no large parking lot around the stadium, tailgating is a bit more mild-mannered than at some universities where there is plenty of lot space. However, this makes for a more intimate tailgating experience that many fans enjoy.
