Tommy Trojan Game Day Tips:

Tempe: The place to check out on Friday night and on game day is Mill Street. It has all the local hangouts and bars to make Trojans fans have a rocking good time. If you want to get out of the heat before the evening’s kick-off, you can hang either inside or outside of the many establishments.

Pregame: Trojans fans can see “Sparky,” the Spirit Squad and the Sun Devil Marching Band in Wells Fargo Arena three hours prior to kickoff. Sun Devil Stadium opens 90 minutes before kick-off. Sun Devil trivia, team warm-ups, the Sun Devil Marching Band and highlights of the previous games are just a few of the features of the countdown to kick-off. Seat backs are available for rental ($6) at various locations throughout Sun Devil Stadium. For Trojans fans, this will be a chance to see the “new” renovated Sun Devils Stadium, which now has a greatly reduced capacity (see above).
