The 27th Annual Spud Bowl is set for September 7th in Stevens Point.

Kickoff is at 6pm at Community Stadium in Goerke Park. The Pointers will be taking on Rockford University.

Tickets are $8 for the game.

There will also be a 5K race in the afternoon before the game. That costs $20 but includes the race, a ticket to the game, a t-shirt and your choice of french fries or a baked potato.

The event is aimed at showcasing the benefits of produce (mainly potatoes), and local agriculture in general.

Proceeds from the game benefit scholarship funds. Since the Spud Bowl began in 1986, they've raised more than $100,000.

You can buy tickets for the event online.
