LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - There’s going to be more time for tailgating at Michigan State University football games for the 2022-23 season school year.

The university announced Monday it has extended hours. The lots will be open at 7 a.m. for all kickoffs between noon and 4 p.m.

They’ll open at 11 a.m. for night games.

The new hours only apply to Saturday games.

“The extended parking hours will allow fans to stagger arrival times, potentially resulting in less traffic congestion,” said Chris Rozman, with Michigan State University Police and Public Safety. “Anything we can do to help with any traffic patterns or traffic flow is going to be appreciated this season specifically.”

MSU is also allowing clear bags in Spartan Stadium. Bags that meet guidelines can be brought in or purchased at the stadium.

Exceptions can be made for medically necessary, childcare or dietary items after proper inspection.

“We have adequate public safety staff to accommodate this change and we will closely monitor and adjust if needed,” Rozman said.
