Slip on your green shirt, warm up your Eagle Claw and head over to Apogee stadium, the Coliseum or one of our other sports venues to watch one of our 16 NCAA Division I teams compete as part of Conference USA.

Grab your green shirt. We turn the stands green on game day and the whole campus shows our spirit every Friday for Mean Green Pride Day.
