RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Several agencies are coming together to control this weekend's huge crowds around Richmond. Police with the city, VCU and the state will be out in full force.

Police are ready to deal with the fan frenzy. According to the Times Dispatch, cops will keep an eye on the Siegel center on West Broad St. and the surrounding area.

3,500 people are expected to watch the game there.

The university and business owners nearby hope the crowds will be orderly, or at least a sort of managed chaos.

The city is encouraging fans to watch the game at the many watch parties businesses around town are throwing.
