Coinciding on May 4 ("May the Fourth be with You" is the slogan), the Cougars will wear jerseys depicting Chewbacca, the popular sidekick to Harrison Ford's Han Solo character.

Fans are encouraged to dress in costume and there will be a parade on the field at 5:30 p.m. Cougars players will be available for a pregame autograph session open to all fans.
