The Abilene Ruff Riders sate adrenaline-craving eyes with an action-packed arsenal of tackles and high-flying passes, while trampling their competition. Strap in for the inaugural home game against the Corpus Christi Hammerheads, which pits buck against bite in a pigskin brawl, and marks the Ruff Riders' first challenge since joining the Southern Indoor Football League in 2010. Ruff Riders' mascot Rowdy the cowboy joins forces with a squad of dancing temptresses to incite fanfare and woo the visiting team into confused complacency. Fans can color coordinate with red-section seats while imitating the players' red and black insignia, eliminating the need to display support by inflating hands with bicycle pumps. Doors open at 6 p.m.
Children's tickets are $10 regularly.
