Don't want to contradict Don B, whose memory on SD football-related things is most often very accurate, but I recall (from addled memory) that most games were over sometime between 10:30 and 11:00. Very few of the games were televised, so there were no TV timeouts, which cut down on the elapsed time significantly. Also, many restaurants sponsored buses to the game from their premises back then, and I can recall being home from those restaurants by midnight whenever I chose that transportation venue...Still time to listen to the radio post-game wrap-up, both in the car and at home...
