The Samford athletics department has several events planned for the upcoming Homecoming weekend.

The events start on Saturday, with the men's and women's basketball teams both holding their annual Red-Blue Scrimmages. The men's scrimmage is scheduled for 10 a.m., while the women's team will scrimmage at 11 a.m., both in the Pete Hanna Center.

After its scrimmage, the women's basketball program will hold its seventh-annual Alumni Reunion at Talbird Circle.

The football team's Southern Conference game against The Citadel is scheduled for a 2 p.m. kickoff at Seibert Stadium. Prior to the football game, the 1971 Samford football team will be recognized. The team won the NCAA College Division West Region II Championship by defeating Ohio Wesleyan, 20-10, in the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl. The team finished the season with a record of 9-1 and ranked seventh in the national UPI poll.

Following the football game, the Samford volleyball team will play host to Elon at 7 p.m. in the Hanna Center. The volleyball team will also play host to UNC Greensboro Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. in the Hanna Center.
