Western Connecticut Running Back Octavias McKoy set the NCAA all-division single-game rushing record on Oct. 26, and he invited Danbury to the team's last home game on Nov. 16.
The Westside Athletic Complex holds about 2,500 people and tickets to the game are $6 for adults, $4 children 12 and under, and senior citizens, all WCSU students, staff and faculty, are free. The game starts at noon, and the tailgating starts before that. Western Connecticut State University students attend the game for free with a college ID.
"It's Senior Day, and we'll be saying goodbye to 20 seniors," said WCSU Head Football Coach Joe Loth, who also invited as many people as possible to the final home game of the season. McKoy ran 455 yards in the Worchester game to set the all-time NCAA rushing record for all divisions.
Loth declined to speak in any depth about McKoy's future in football, but he said it is certainly a possibility McKoy could be selected by an NFL team during the NFL draft.
McKoy said he strongly hopes he has a future in football. He said he started playing flag football at age 4.
