JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

On Saturday, Jackson State University and Southern University will face off at 6 pm at Veterans' Memorial Stadium.

The Jackson Police Department is putting out a traffic advisory ahead of the big game, which could cause major congestion in the metro. With the Fair going on the same day, police are urging citizens to have alternate parking arrangements in place because of limited parking availability.

The game is Saturday at 6:00 p.m. and police are warning of traffic delays around the Veterans' Memorial Football Stadium from 1 p.m.- 11 p.m.

They say the delays will also apply to I-55 from Lakeland Drive to High Street. Citizens are strongly encouraged to adjust their driving routes if they don't plan on going to the game.
