Texas Wesleyan is eager to hit the football field after a 76-year hiatus, and the Rams are sharing their excitement with DFW football fans.

A commercial revealing Wesleyan’s uniforms and featuring four players will air during the Dallas Cowboys-Detroit Lions game on Dec. 26 and the College Football Playoff.

The players featured in the commercial are Andrew Walker (Mansfield Summit), Erik Richards (Tyler Junior College), Dylan Briscoe (Mansfield Summit) and Ucheoma Oparaochaekue (Mansfield).

The Rams open the 2017 season Sept. 2 at McPherson (Kan.) College. The home opener is Sept. 9 against Millsaps (Miss.) College. The university said it will announce the location for its home games this spring.
