Friday, Sept. 9: "Gameday Hit Tape"
Click the embedded media player below to see a new Friday feature for Gameday Central, the Friday "hit tape." Enjoy and we'll see you at the game Saturday!
The following was release by Iowa State University today...
AMES, Iowa - This Saturday in Ames, it's all about pigskin - and patience - during the state's biggest game of the year.
When the Cyclones and the Hawkeyes renew their intrastate football rivalry for the 59th time this Saturday at 11 a.m., 75,000 fans will be in and around Jack Trice Stadium to cheer them on. And that's a lot of people, cars and congestion in an area covering less than a square mile.
As always, Iowa State University officials encourage fans to allow extra travel time, to arrive early, and to consider alternate routes to avoid frustration.
Allow extra time
How much is enough? Think hours, not minutes, before you need to be here, says ISU Police Chief Jerry Stewart.
"People who hope to arrive between 10 and 11 a.m. will experience heavy traffic and risk missing kickoff," Stewart said. "Significant road construction in various parts of the state, including Highway 30, also adds travel time. In addition, we have some fans parking in new (unfamiliar) lots this year, and other visitors who don't know the lay of the land. Extra time and tolerance will help everyone to have a much more enjoyable experience."
