Falcons Announce Game Times for Football

The games times are out for Falcon Football...see below.

Eastern Michigan (Oct. 4, 4 p.m.)
Miami (Oct. 18, Noon)
Kent State (Nov. 1, 2 p.m.)
Buffalo (Nov. 21, 6 p.m.).

The nation is in a bit of a snit because there are only two games under the lights, and one of them is in the frigid part of the calendar. The homecoming game is always during the day, but the Miami and Kent games--no explanation there.

I thought night football worked for us--at least as a fan. But, my guess is that if you look at the macro-trends, our attendance has been about the same before lights as after. Our attendance is driven by a small number of die-hards, and then more people when we are winning, or playing Toledo or Miami. Day, night, doesn't seem to matter.
