The Arizona State game will kick off at 8:00 PM Eastern on ABC. The
6 5:00 PM local time start should allow plenty of tailgating. That is, if the Arizona State authorities will allow tailgating before 2:30 PM, which university policy prohibits.
If you're making the trip, you have to be pleased with the early evening kick off.
UPDATE: As commenter "cwl" reminded me, the entire Arizona State cheerleading squad was scrapped this week. The Dirty posted photos of six cheerleaders in their underwear. Frankly, they're not that great or that scandalous. What's the deal ASU? Banning your cheerleaders because they took some pictures at a slumber party? No liquor, at all? No beer or wine until three and a half hours before the game? I thought we lived in the Bible Belt, not you.
If the rumors are true, we won't care if there are cheerleaders because every coed is supposedly smoking hot at ASU, and not because its 120 degrees outside.
(Thanks to the time experts in the comments section. Arizona apparently toggles their time zones and in the half of the year that includes September they prefer Pacific Standard time, as opposed to Mountain Standard for the other half of the year.)
