JSU fans will flood Fondren today for the 19th annual Capital City Classic. The football rivalry pits Jackson State University against Alcorn State University at Veteran’s Memorial/Tiger Stadium. As the biggest match up all season for the tigers, fan support – and traffic will be strong. With more vehicles on the road and more people in the neighborhood, it will no doubt be a busy day. So, plan ahead and drive safely. The Mississippi Highway Patrol is also encouraging the cautious attitude when it comes to taking the wheel. “No matter which team you’re pulling for, we can all support traffic safety”, said MHP Chief Col. Donnell Berry. “Drive sober, buckle up and put down your phone. That’s how to be on the winning side”.
Find It In Fondren™ wishes the best to all involved, especially our hometown tiger team!
UPDATE: Congrats to the Tigers with a 51-7 victory!
