    NACOGDOCHES, Texas - The Westin Oaks at the Galleria will serve as the SFA headquarters for the annual Battle of the Piney Woods rivalry game against Sam Houston State, the weekend of Nov. 1-3, 2013. An SFA Fan Block has been set aside at a special rate of $109 per night.

    "We're excited The Westin Oaks at the Galleria will be hosting SFA this year," SFA Assistant Athletics Director John Branch said. "I encourage everyone to make their room reservation early. Our alumni and fans are so supportive of this game and always sell out our fan block. We want to make sure everyone has an opportunity to stay with us at The Westin Oaks."

    In addition to the accommodations for the weekend, the Westin will also serve as the host for the annual Friday night party for all SFA alumni and fans on Nov. 1. The event will run from 6-8 p.m. and everyone is invited and encouraged to attend.
