  • Pittsburg State University fans will have the chance to help the department of communications win a prestigious contest, as well as some money for the department.
    The Oklahoma City rolling restaurant, Big Truck Tacos, will be parked at Gorilla Village this Saturday for the game between the Gorillas and Missouri Southern State University. After winning the 84th Annual OSTCA competition, Pitt State was offered a chance for a second competition as a way to raise scholarship money for the department of communications. The nationally recognized Big Truck Tacos, which has been featured on the Food Network, has extended the competition by adding a second contest.
    Rogers State University will be pitted against Pitt State in a sales competition. The company will send a truck to each of the campuses, and whichever truck sells the most product wins. The winning school then will receive 30 percent of the proceeds toward scholarships in the College of Arts and Sciences in the department of communication.
    “OSTCA allowed us extensive hands-on experience, senior contestant Katie Casterline said in a release. “The Missouri Southern game will present us with another opportunity to work with BTT, and we are all definitely excited for them to participate in PSU's football scene!"
    Big Truck Tacos will be on campus offering tacos, burritos, gorditos and other Latino cuisine in Gorilla Village from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. The owners have created a new dish, the “Gorilla Special,” to sell at the game and their famous “Fifth Amendment” burrito — the ingredients are not divulged — may also be available.
    “They have a wide array of burritos,” said event media advisor Daniel Kilby. “They’ll have a limited menu, but it will be catered to PSU specifications. The ingredients very high quality.”
    Thomas Gregory, senior in communications, said he hopes the community will be a good host.
    “This will be the best opportunity to introduce Big Truck to Pittsburg State University,” Gregory said in a release. “There really is nothing quite like our football season, you really need to experience it firsthand.”
