SALT LAKE CITY — A University of Utah football ticket will double as Utah Transit Authority bus and rail fare all day Saturday as the Utes kick off their first home game of the season.

The game against Northern Illinois starts at 11 a.m. at Rice-Eccles Stadium, and UTA will offer special direct TRAX trains from Draper Town Center to the stadium.

Following the game, extra trains will travel from the stadium to Draper and Daybreak.

For those traveling on FrontRunner, riders getting off at the Murray Central Station should take the Red Line to the university. Bus service will be available from the Salt Lake Central Station to the stadium before and after the game. Those riding TRAX from the Salt Lake Central Station will need to transfer from the Blue Line to the Red Line at the Courthouse Station.
