Michigan State might be cutting back on tailgating time in the upcoming football season.

Flyers reportedly posted near donor parking over the weekend said the university's 7/9/1 rule would be changing in 2016. The rule refers to when tailgating lots open for football games at different kickoff times at MSU: noon games called for tailgating to begin at 7 a.m., 3:30 p.m. games allowed for a 9 a.m. tailgating start, and night games called for a 1 p.m. tailgating start.

But the flyers said the rule would be changing to 7/10:30/3 for the 2016 football season, meaning noon games would be unaffected, but 3:30 p.m. kickoffs would now push the tailgating start time back to 10:30 a.m., and night games would not allow tailgating until 3 p.m.

A link on MSU's Spartan Fund page detailing the tailgate time changes had surfaced, but now the page returns a "404 Not Found" error.

MSU's game day web page still reflects the "7/9/1" rule.
