BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

In response to thousands of LSU fans heading to Syracuse, many business owners there have agreed to open bars early on game day.

According to Syracuse.com, Visit Syracuse partnered with Visit Baton Rouge to enhance the experience of LSU fans when they head to Syracuse, as the Orange host the Tigers on Saturday.

Some bars will reportedly open as early as 8 a.m. to accommodate fans and plan to have enough alcohol on hand to serve those wanting to drink.

Jason Ramezan, vice president of the LSU Alumni Association, said about 7,500 LSU fans are expected to head to Syracuse for the game.

Kickoff is scheduled for 11 a.m.
