Mason’s men’s basketball team regular season opening game will be on Friday, Nov. 13, at 7:30 p.m. The Patriots host the Liberty University Flames at the Patriot Center.

A tradition begins with the season opener: a new Mason fight song. It debuted during  Mason Madness last month.

Written by Green Machine bandleader Michael “Doc Nix” Nickens, the new fight song is called “Onward to Victory.”

The new lyrics will be sung to the tune of the old fight song. They are

Hail to George Mason!
Don your green and gold!
We’re going to sing for George Mason,
Patriots brave and bold!
We’re going to cheer for George Mason,
Proud for the world to see!
We’ll prove our honor and might,
And we’ll FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!
As we march onward to victory!
