Police Prepare for Historic Football Game at Central Michigan University

One of the biggest football games in Central Michigan University history is less than 24 hours away and police are preparing to deal with record crowds.

Saturday's game will be the first time Central has played football against Michigan State at home.

All law enforcement agencies in Mount Pleasant are adding patrols. Police expect 50,000 to 60,000 people will be coming into town.

Law enforcement agencies have been preparing for the game for more than a year. Their primary concern is traffic.

Police will also patrol tailgating lots and areas off campus to make sure parties stay under control.

Central Michigan has even turned some green areas into temporary parking lots to accommodate the additional visitors.

9 and 10's Kyle Mitchell and photojournalist Tony Zyber have more as police prepare for the game.
