MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia University Medicine says parking for the football game on Saturday will be restricted to the campus of J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital, and no tailgating will be permitted.

No. 16 Kansas State visits the Mountaineers at noon on Saturday in a Big 12 matchup.

Milan Puskar Stadium will operate at 25% capacity due to the coronavirus pandemic, the university said. Attendance for each remaining game this season is being capped at about 15,000 fans.

WVU Medicine’s Security Department also issued parking guidelines that require patients and visitors who will be at the hospital past midnight Friday to move their vehicles into the parking garage outside the Emergency Department.

Also, patients and visitors must pick up game day passes at the Emergency Department checkpoint leading to the garage starting Saturday morning.
