President Trump’s arrival and game attendance has city and university leaders planning for extensive security and more traffic.

Walt Maddox tweeted from a meeting Monday saying the city is preparing for an “epic” weekend.

UA’s Student Government Association has asked to students to refrain from “disruptive behavior” due to the additional security at the game.

How are you preparing for Saturday’s game?
