- In Lou We Trust covers the Jersey side of this series. Follow SB Nation's Story Stream for further updates.
- For those hitting the BAC tonight...doors open at 5:30, parking fees are now in effect for partial- and non-season seat holders, and "increased" security has been added (read: metal detectors and whatever else is employed these days that may or may not be Constitutionally valid). Full details from the club here.
