Instagram Takeovers

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Belmont University Athletics will hand over the reins of its Instagram account to select teams on specific Fridays throughout the 2018-19 academic year.  Beginning with the first official home competition this fall, Bruin athletic teams will have the opportunity to share their experiences, through pictures and videos through Instagram stories.

Giving unprecedented access, the Instagram Stories Takeover will give fans behind-the-scenes access into the lives of Belmont student-athletes on some of their biggest and most exciting game days of the upcoming 2018-19 season.  From early wakeups and taking classes in the morning to seamlessly transitioning to pregame rituals in the evening, followers can expect to see it all through the eyes of a student-athlete.

The first team takeover set for August 17 will feature the women's soccer team. The Bruins will host longtime rival Lipscomb in the annual Battle of the Boulevard contest at E.S. Rose Park.  Match time is set for 6:30 p.m.

A portion of the fall Instagram takeovers can be found below. Announcements of the individual student-athlete taking the account over to present their respective team will be made on Instagram.

Please follow the Belmont Athletics Instagram account at and the hashtag "#BruinsTakeover" as these teams give everyone an inside look into the experience of being a member of a BU team on game day.
