There are so many reasons to watch the Trojans play on Halloween night it is almost scary, according to information from Troy University Athletics.

Beginning at 4:30 p.m. at Tailgate Terrace, there will be face painting, trick-or-treating and other activities for children, including the usual inflatable activities at Riddle Pace Field.

Children 12 and under who are dressed in a Halloween costume will also be admitted to the game, for free. Children in costume must check in at the Halloween decorated Troy tent in Tailgate Terrace between 4:30 and 6 p.m. to receive a free general admission ticket.
