Photo gallery: Redbird football fans, then and now
The Illinois State football team opens the season Saturday with a 1 p.m. home game against Dayton.
The STATEside crew, with help from the Dr. JoAnn Rayfield Archives at Illinois State University, pulled some historic shots of Redbird fans over the years at Hancock Stadium. The fashions may have changed — there are a lot of sweet-looking sweaters in the crowd — but Redbird love is timeless.
If you’ve got your own historic shots from a Redbird football game, please send them along to Photos@IllinoisState.edu and we’ll add them to the gallery below. Share your own memories in the Comments below.
