COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMOV) – Drivers heading to Columbia for the Missouri Tigers first game in the Southeastern Conference should expect big delays early Saturday evening.
The Missouri Highway Patrol said traffic in and around Faurot Field may be at its highest level ever.
The school’s first game in the SEC is against nationally-ranked Georgia and the highway patrol believes there will be more tailgaters than usual for the sold-out affair.
The highway patrol urges those going to Memorial Stadium and adjacent lots to arrive early and have patience with the out-of-town fans who have never visited Columbia.
Kickoff for the game is set for 6:45 p.m.
