PULLMAN, Wash. -Activities for students, alumni and fans will get underway Saturday as Washington State University celebrates Young Alumni and WSU Foundation Weekend before kicking off the second home game of the fall football season at noon against the University of Southern California Trojans at Martin Stadium.

WSU's traditional game-day Food Fair will take place in the recently remodeled Hollingbery Fieldhouse beginning three and a half hours prior to the scheduled kick-off on Saturday.
 
Visitors are reminded that WSU establishes a temporary restricted traffic zone on Stadium Way between Grimes Way and Orchard Dr./Colorado St. for all home football game from two and a half hours before kickoff time until two hours after the game's conclusion.

Chris Boyan, assistant director for WSU Parking, campus visitors should also be aware that ongoing construction work and parking lot closures and revisions have led to a number of parking restrictions and changes to which specific lots will be made available for game day parking. For that reason, WSU recommends that visitors review the university's General Football Parking Map online at http://www.parking.wsu.edu/utils/File.aspx?fileid=2976 prior to their arrival on campus.

Football fans are encouraged to arrive early, plan ahead for parking and traffic challenges and make use of free public transit shuttles on game days, he said.
