BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Although the LSU Tigers will be hitting the road to Tuscaloosa for its matchup with the Alabama Crimson Tide, the game is still causing scheduling problems in Baton Rouge.

Students attending this year's homecoming dance at Catholic High School may want to invite their date to lunch instead of dinner. The dance, originally scheduled to start at 7 p.m., was moved up to 3 p.m.

The school announced Wednesday it moved the time of homecoming festivities on Nov. 5  because of that evening's epic college football game featuring LSU versus Alabama.

"Due to the LSU-Alabama football game set for 7 p.m. on November 5, the Catholic High School Administration has moved the CHS Homecoming Dance to 3 p.m. on November 5," a statement posted on the school's website read.

The school said the event will end at 5:30 p.m.

"Pictures are scheduled to be taken starting at 2:30 p.m. in the Wrestling Room," the statement added.

Earlier this week, Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond moved the time of its homecoming game on Nov. 5 from 7 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. The school did not state a reason for the time change.
