Yes, the game is on.
We already knew that.
But there have been some changes for tailgaters.
UM said that fans "should be aware'' that the Green and RV tailgating lots will now open at 4 p.m., while the Blue, Maroon, Yellow, Purple and Orange lots will open at 5 p.m.
"Any individuals who do not have a ticket to the game, or do not have a ticket waiting at will call or on a pass list, will not be permitted to enter the tailgating area at Hard Rock Stadium,'' a UM press release said.
Also, "as part of the efforts to assist in the aftermath of the hurricane, both schools will present a check for $50,000 prior to the game for hurricane relief. In addition, fans are encouraged to aid in the relief effort and will be provided opportunities in the stadium to support the effort.''
Players will wear a specially designed helmet sticker with the state of Florida covered by the Red Cross logo.
