Security Bolstered for the Florida Georgia Game

This Saturday, kick off is scheduled for 3:30pm at TIAA Bank Field with an expected crowd of 82,000.

After a drive-by shooting on A. Philip Randolph Boulevard, a half mile away from the stadium, a half hour before the Jaguars Texans game last Sunday, security will be in abundance for the event.

College Gameday will be in Jacksonville for the game for the first time since 2005. A big deal for national coverage, the city is doing everything it can to make a good impression not just for the fans at the event, but also for the millions watching on TV.

650 Officers will be in and around the stadium, including areas near downtown that are popular for pre-game parties. Lighting is also being added to poorly lit areas.

If you’re going to the game, you have to be parked by 10:30am, lots open at 7am.
