2018 Football Promotional Schedule – Sept 1 vs. Jackson State

May 22, 2018

HATTIESBURG, Miss. - The Southern Miss football program enters its third season under Head Coach Jay Hopson and looks to build off their consecutive winning seasons and bowl appearances, including an 8-5 mark and Independence Bowl berth from a season ago.

Each week this summer, Southern Miss will release the game day promotions for each game as well as share changes to game day for the 2018 season.

On Sept. 1, the Golden Eagles take on Jackson State.  The home opener will be a Gold Out as all fans will be encouraged to wear Southern Miss gold for the game.  It will also be the debut for the first Freshman Flight, which will be an opportunity for incoming freshman to run out of the tunnel and onto the field before the team. 

“It will be a unique experience for incoming students that their first memory and experience with Athletics as a student will be getting to run out and onto the field.  We think it’s a great way to make fans for life,” said Stephen Pugh, Sr. Assoc. AD for External Operations.

The home opener will also mark the first Fan Remembrance for Southern Miss.  Before the game, Southern Miss will hold a moment of silence to remember all the fans, season ticket holders, supporters, and members of the Southern Miss family that passed since the last football season. 

“It’s an opportunity to remember all the great fans that are no longer with us and allow us to recognize what they mean to our Southern Miss family,” said Pugh. 

In early August, the Athletic department will send out information to fans that will allow them to submit names of family members and friends in order for them to be remembered before the game.

Youth Sports Day will also take place on Sept. 1.  Youth athletes from any sport can purchase discounted tickets to the game, take part in a pre-game sports clinic, and be recognized on the field before the game.  The pre-game sports clinic will feature Southern Miss Student-athletes from a number of sports that gives kids the opportunity to experience and try new sports.

Headlining the game will be the Halftime show featuring the Pride of the Mississippi Marching Band for Southern Miss and Sonic Boom of the South for Jackson State.  Both of these legendary bands will get to put on a show that no fan will want to miss. 

Last season, the University of Southern Mississippi announced new safety measures, including a clear bag policy and an updated golf cart policy.   Fans can also continue to take advantage of the Season ticket holder referral program.  For each successful referral, the original season ticket holder will receive their choice of a $20 future credit on their ticket account up to $200 or a $20 voucher for concessions in M.M. Roberts Stadium up to $100.  On the tenth successful referral the fan will receive a personalized Southern Miss football jersey.  On the 15th successful referral, the fan will receive an all-inclusive trip to a road game.  To participate, fans should contact the Ticket Office at 1-800-844-TICK or fill out the form by clicking this link.

Season Tickets start at $110 per seat and are the best deal on tickets.  Season Ticket holders receive access to exclusive events, discounts on additional single game tickets, priority access to post season tickets, the same seat for every game and prizes and giveaways throughout the year.
