(AP) - The superintendent of the Louisiana State Police says there will be few state troopers helping with security at the LSU football game Saturday.
Col. Mike Edmonson says the state police's priority isn't the LSU game - it's Hurricane Isaac recovery and flood response efforts.
Edmonson says state police normally stations 50 to 80 troopers at an LSU game. He says it'll be a far smaller group, about 15 troopers, for the No. 3 Tigers' game against North Texas in Tiger Stadium on Saturday night.
"They're not expecting as many people. They wanted to have the game. It was important for them to have it. It was their call," Edmonson said.
He warned people going to the game that they can expect to spend more time in traffic.
