Start time for season opener at UL Lafayette moved to 7:30 p.m.

Northwestern State’s football season opener will start at a later time than originally scheduled. 

The Demons’ 2023 season debut at UL Lafayette now will kick off at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 2. The decision was made to further enhance the fan and student experience at the game. 

The adjustment also affects the tailgate hosted jointly by the NSU athletic department and the NSU Alumni Association, which also will move back an hour and begin at 4 p.m. For more information on that event, go online to
