BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Southeastern Conference teams will hold Prostate Cancer Awareness Games throughout September on all 14 member campuses to honor former Commissioner Mike Slive.
Slive, 75, retired earlier this year after 13 years leading the SEC. He battled prostate cancer through his career.
The home team at each game will wear a helmet decal that has a blue ribbon with Slive written in gold letters on it over an SEC logo. In addition to wearing helmet stickers, schools will conduct other activities such as video board announcements, prostate cancer screenings, recognition of prostate cancer survivors, game program ads and stories, production of public service announcements and social media outreach.
The first Prostate Cancer Awareness Game will be Western Kentucky at Vanderbilt on the opening Thursday of the FBS season.
