Southern Miss-UC game moved to 1 p.m.
The Associated Press
HATTIESBURG, Miss. Kickoff for the Southern Mississippi-Cincinnati football game on Oct. 19 has been moved to 1 p.m. due to work at M.M. Roberts Stadium, school officials said.
Work includes improvements and additions to lighting at the stadium on the Hattiesburg campus.
Each time we played a night game that was televised on an ESPN network, we would have to secure additional lighting to meet ESPN's lighting requirements, said David Hansen, Southern Miss' associate director of athletics/internal operations. We were spending $65,000 to rent the lights for each televised night game. It was just smarter to invest in a permanent solution.
Hansen said that because lights would not be available while the work was being done, we decided that it would be best to push the start of the game back to 1 p.m., to keep available light around as long as possible.
