JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – As the excitement builds for the Jacksonville Jaguars season finale game, there are a few things fans should know ahead of Saturday night’s head-to-head game against the Tennessee Titans.

In true game spirit, the Jags will don their teal uniforms as chosen by fans in a Twitter poll. Saturday’s game marks Jacksonville’s 30th home primetime game and the team’s first home primetime game on a Saturday.

This divisional showdown will also mark the first time the Jaguars have hosted a primetime game outside of Thursday Night Football since they welcomed the San Diego Chargers to TIAA Bank Field on Monday Night Football in 2011.

Here’s what you can expect on Saturday night:

  • Fans are encouraged to plan ahead and arrive early as big crowds are expected. Parking lots will open four hours prior to kickoff. More parking information can be found here. Stadium directions can be found here.
  • Be Clear on Game Day: The NFL’s clear bag policy is in effect at TIAA Bank Field. If you need to bring a bag, it must be a clear bag no larger than 12″ x 6″ x 12″ or a non-clear bag no larger than 4.5″ x 6.5″ | Jaguars Fan Guide
