As The University of Toledo’s new president, Gaber has traded in her cardinal and white for blue and gold and will be rooting for the Toledo Rockets as they play her former institution at 3 p.m. Saturday at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock.

“I’ve told Coach Campbell that I’m counting on a Rocket victory that I can brag about and hold over my friends’ heads,” Gaber said.

Gaber served as the University of Arkansas Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs from 2009 until she became UT’s 17th president on July 1.

UT alumni from across the country are traveling to Little Rock to join President Gaber in the excitement of the matchup. More than 165 people are participating in a pre-game event noon to 2 p.m. Saturday at Rick’s Armory (4700 West 8th Street) near the stadium.
