Tallahassee, FL - We're a little more than 24 hours away from the FSU v. UM game and law enforcement is determined to keep the peace. Hurricanes and Seminoles don't mix and have the history to prove it.
One Seminole fan said, "We don't like Miami and they don't like us very much either." A feeling echoed by many Noles and Hurricanes, but this year things are different with both teams are undefeated, in the top ten and are going head to head.
FSU Police Department Spokesman James Russell, "There are somewhere around 250 officers that are assigned to it. What makes this game a little bit different is we know its going to be busy. So everyone is literally putting their game faces on expecting be busy getting ready to work hard to make sure that the venue goes well for everybody who is attending."
Over the years the FSU MIAMI game has been the busiest game for law enforcement. FSU- PD reports this game has more ejection's from the stadium than any other game in FSU's season-- averaging 106 per game. This game also has the second highest average for arrests with 10 each game.
"There needs to be a bigger police perkiness just because of the hype of the game day especially here with game day everyone is going to be going crazy," explained Michael Hanselman a big time Seminole Fan.
While your at the game is someone around you is being completely obnoxious you have options FSU-PD has set up a Jerk hotline so all you have to do is dial 645-5375 or 645-JERK and they will pin point the person you have described and they will escort them out of the stadium.
Law enforcement has told us game day means all hands on deck. Hoping they can keep the peace between the Noles and Hurricanes.
