The season starts this weekend for the RIT Tigers and they're not opening up with a cupcake either.

RIT begins the season taking on the 14th ranked Northeastern Huskies at the Blue Cross Arena on Saturday.

Downtown Rochester has been kind to the Tigers over the past couple seasons. The Tigers are riding a six-game unbeaten streak at the Blue Cross Arena including two conference championships in 2015 and 2016.

RIT sold out its last seven games at Blue Cross, so it should be a wild atmosphere on Saturday and the team is ready to put on a show for the fans.

"Yeah, they're always excited for this game," says head coach Wayne Wilson. "A lot of emotion and when you have 11,000 people in the stands, it's certainly an exciting time. We're getting ready for our opponent and just preparing this week as we move along."
