MSU Gets Ready for Game Day
FOX 47 News
The Michigan State football team is set to play Boise State University on Friday with kickoff scheduled for 8 p.m.
Chris Taylor is an MSU senior. He has a season ticket and is ready to again be part of the sea of green and white.
"Being my last year and I kind of want to see how Maxwell does after Kirk Cousins is gone," Taylor said.
Game day can get pretty crazy, especially when it's on a Friday Night. The game against Boise State is likely sold out and police are expecting upwards of 85,000 people on campus.
MSU police will be working with several other departments including East Lansing police to direct traffic and keep things in order.
"Traffic is always something individuals have to look out for. We always ask individuals to make certain they exercise patience," said Sgt. Florene McGlothian-Taylor from the Michigan State University Police Department.
Sgt. Taylor also reminded fans that bags and purses won't be allowed in the stadium and asked them to just bring essentials like cash and identification. Also, only certain types of seat cushions will pass through security.
"They can't bring anything that has a pocket on the side where they can actually place items within it because that is considered to be a purse," said Sgt. Taylor.
The rules are tight, but there's no rule against having a great time.
"You got to be careful sometimes, you know watch out for a few things but it's a lot of fun; it's probably my favorite time of the year to be honest," Chris Taylor said.
