Saturday's Blackout the Rock game - Louisville at Southern Miss - is appropriately kicking off after dark, at 7 p.m.
The latest start time of the season so far also means a longer game-day experience - and that means more opportunities to tailgate.
Watch a two-minute video on Southern Miss tailgating below, or view tailgating tips from The Student Printz.
Southern Miss Athletics is running a free T-shirt special for fans who pick up will-call orders or purchase tickets for Saturday's game, while supplies last. The black T-shirt features the eagle head logo and #GoldenEaglePride hash tag.
