Council orders additional towels for Utah game

Interfraternity Council has partnered with the athletics department to order 10,000 purple towels with pink ribbons for the Saturday football game against Utah.

IFC originally planned to order 3,000 black towels with pink ribbons in an effort to find a compromise between the Pink Out vs. Black Out controversy that stemmed from a Facebook event urging students to wear black to the Utah game, which had been designated as the Pink Out game in support of breast cancer awareness, said IFC President Evan Berlin.

“We decided to order more towels and change the color from black to purple because College GameDay is coming to TCU and also because we wanted to support Susan G. Komen and Frogs for the Cure,” Berlin said.

IFC and the athletics department are still working out the logistics of where the towels will be passed out, but they will definitely be distributed at the student tailgate and at the College GameDay location in the Campus Commons, Berlin said.
