This is always a great time!  Last year's game weekend atmosphere in Jackson was unbelievable. 

Lesson learned however.  I will NOT wait until the last minute for hotel.  The city and surrounding areas were Sold Out.  That mess of a motel I stayed in was horrible.... Like a Horror movie seriously..  :lol: :lol:

I say either do the Downtown Hilton or stay in New Orleans and just drive up that Saturday morning. I may do that this year.

It used to take us about 2 hours but probably a good 2.5 hours.

A lot of folks fly into New Orleans that Wednesday or Thursday then drive up to Jackson. It's cheaper to fly into NOLA than Jackson.

That's a good idea.  lol

Yeah, I usually stay in Pearl, but I will look into Downtown early on.

I hope nobody gets a ticket trying to get to Jackson, MS from New Orleans, LA in 2 hours.  At 184 miles distance, one would have to travel at a constant speed of 90-plus miles/hour to cover that distance within 2 hours.  2.5 hours is more realistic, but is still above the speed limit at some constant rate of speed.  A 3 hour trip is closer to the travelling the speed limit at 70 miles/hour. Jackson, Ms and my hometown (Alexandria, LA) is about the same distance from New Orleans.  If hotels are a problem and depending on what direction you are coming from, one might look at Vicksburg MS or Monroe, LA.  Also, Baton Rouge is about 3 hours from Jackson, MS at a little less distance (178 miles) than New Orleans.

BR to Jackson is maybe 2 hours and 15 mins for me... :shrug:

At a 178 miles distance, it's possible at a constant rate of speed at 79.11 miles/hour or approx. 80 miles/hour, which is about 10 miles/hour above the speed limit of 70 miles/hour.  At the constant rate of the speed limit of 70 miles/hour, it will take 2 hours and 33 minutes to travel 178 miles..  Therefore, one will travel approximately 10 miles/hour over the speed limit to save approximately 15 to 18 minutes in time.  I suggest that people drive careful and enjoy the game.

I haven't made the trip since undergrad and, yeah, we were always pushing it at 2am.

Yogi, your voodoo doesn't work anymore so you're welcome to come. Fly into NOLA and make a mini vacation out of it. I did it in 2013.

I do understand.  People will drive how and when they determine. :shrug:   Get there safe and have a blast.  You won't regret it.
This is STILL one of the Premiere HBCU football games in the country.  For those that have never attended, you have got to experience it first hand.   :clap: :clap:
