PHOENIX — PlayStation Fiesta Bowl spectators can expect heavy traffic along the Loop 101 heading into State Farm Stadium on Tuesday morning.

The Fan Fest pregame party starts at 7:30 a.m., and the Louisiana State University Tigers will take on the University of Central Florida Knights at 11 a.m.

Fans can purchase $40 parking passes for the lots around the stadium. There is also parking available at Westgate Entertainment District for $10 and Tanger Outlets for $20.

The Glendale Police Department urged fans to arrive to the stadium from 7-9 a.m. to avoid congestion.
