BOCA RATON, Fla. — College football fans turn their attention to South Florida tonight as the Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl kicks off at Florida Atlantic University.

The game will be broadcast on ESPN with kickoff at 7:05 p.m. The gates open at 5 p.m. and the parking lots open at 2 p.m.

Even if you are not going to the game, you can expect to see a lot of traffic around FAU tonight on Glades Road and even I-95.

FAU police will be following a clear bag policy like at an NFL game, so you cannot bring in large bags or backpacks. Small clutch bags that can fit in the palm of your hand are OK.

Everyone will be screened through metal detectors so give yourself extra time for parking and to get through security if you are going to the game.
