TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Tempe officials are expected large crowds and lots of traffic on Saturday, thanks to a big football game at Arizona State University's Sun Devil Stadium and numerous other public events in the Phoenix suburb.
ASU will be hosting Stanford in the Pac-12 championship game. Other events include two NCAA women's basketball games at ASU, a swim festival and two showings of the musical "Evita." Plus there's the ASU Arts Festival on Mill Avenue.
As many as 300,000 people are expected to attend these events in Tempe.
City officials recommend that people traveling to Tempe arrival early and use park-and-ride lots and take light rail.
