CARROLLTON, Ga. -- The first Big Blue Friday of the University of West Georgia's athletic year will be held Jan. 11.
Big Blue Friday is a tradition that gives Carrollton businesses the opportunity to show their UWG spirit.
"We are excited about the enthusiasm our fan base has and look forward to another successful Big Blue Friday," UWG senior associate athletic director Eddie Duffey said in a statement.
Certain shops and services will offer discounts to anyone who wears UWG Wolves gear on Big Blue Friday. Participating locations include Advantage Office Solutions, American Pie Pizzeria, The Border Mexican Restaurant, Carroll County Animal Hospital, Chick-fil-A, Harry T's Car Wash, Next Level Sports Center, Ozier Apparel, Papa John's, Shane's Rib Shack and the UWG Bookstore.
Big Blue Friday will follow Thursday's 7:30 basketball game against Valdosta State, and will precede Saturday's tangle with West Florida.
