Louisville fans are encouraged to head out early to Thursday’s game against Florida State to avoid traffic congestion expected during several major events in that area.

A large Future Farmers of America convention event at the Kentucky Exposition Center, racing at Churchill Downs and normal evening traffic will add to traffic woes. The reserved parking lots surrounding the stadium will open at 2:30 p.m. for tailgaters attending the match-up with the nation’s second-ranked team.

A press release issued by UofL Athletics states:

Regular traffic patterns for game days will not change. Drivers should cooperate with the police directing traffic. U of L students who regularly park at the stadium on weekdays will be parking at an alternate location on Thursday.

While Halloween falls on Friday evening and fans may wish to be festive, costumes may be worn to the game but masks will not be permitted.
