Get ready for game day, Sun Devils!

August 27, 2019

The first football game of the season is this Thursday, Aug. 29. The Sun Devils will face Kent State at Sun Devil Stadium. The Inferno — the loud and proud student section — will be showing first-year students and diehard upper-division fans the traditions that make ASU home games so spirited.

To make the most of game day, there are a few things you need to know.

First, the fun doesn’t start at the game. Head to downtown Tempe starting at 4 p.m. to the official tailgate party of ASU games: Devils on Mill. The event will also celebrate Rainbow Welcome, which will feature campus resources for LGBTQIA+ students and allies at ASU. Don’t miss out on the food, games, music and more before kickoff.

Second, you need a little Sun Devil Football 101. What should you wear? What should you bring? What can you expect (other than a Sun Devil victory and a really good time)? Remember these tips:

  • Claim your FREE student ticket on the ASU mobile app. Students should enter the stadium via the Southeast gate.

  • Remember the clear-bag policy.

  • Wear gold! (Except for one blackout game and one Maroon Monsoon, see below).

Save the date for the rest of the home football games this season:

  • Sept. 21 versus Colorado. Wear gold!

  • Oct. 12 versus Washington State. Wear gold!

  • Nov. 9 versus USC. This is a blackout game. Wear black!

  • Nov. 23 versus Oregon. This is the Maroon Monsoon. Wear maroon!

  • Nov. 30 versus U of A. This is the Territorial Cup. Wear gold!

Help light up the Inferno this season. Go Devils!
