Each group will get to perform, but at not at normal times. Miami's band, The Frost Band of The Hour, will perform pregame on the field, while The Million Dollar Band will have 4 minutes in the stands as their pregame. For halftime the roles will be switched, the MDB will perform on the field, and Miami will have 4 minutes in the stands as their performance.

This change comes to protect the safety of the members of each group, as only one ensemble will be allowed on the field.
