As part of the festivities, you will experience the excitement of Golden Eagle football by joining us for The Eagle Walk at 4 PM. The Eagle Walk is a celebration of the spirit of Southern Miss football and allows fans to cheer on the team before entering the stadium.

For football season ticket holders or those who have already purchased tickets to the game, the cost is $25 per person.
