Game time for the home opener is 1 p.m. with Joy participating in the coin toss and being recognized at halftime, along with the Swenson Award winners. The Swenson Award goes to the top male and female student- athletes from the previous year. Joy has worked with many Swenson winners during his nearly 20 years on the Campus of a Thousand Oaks.

Jerry Joy Day at the Oak Bowl is designed to celebrate Jerry Joy and to bring attention to a special fundraising initiative to name the Bobcat’s new home locker room the Jerry Joy Home Locker Room.
