How is the music for home football games determined?

The athletic department scripts out game day music with input from various groups.

We are aware how important the traditions are to our fans who have made the game day experience at The Rock so special for years and years. Bugler's Dream will be played at our remaining home games this season, so I can't wait to see our crowd point toward the end zone when the song comes on.
