Kentucky Wildcats and NC State Wolfpack to face off in the Taxslayer Gator Bowl

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — It’s a game that city leaders say brings in $25 million for the city most years.

But, not this year.

For Saturday’s game occupancy will be limited to 10,000 people, face masks will be required inside the stadium, and there is no tailgating.

Casa Dora owner Freddy Ghobad tells Action News Jax he’s not banking on their normal spike in business this weekend due to those changes.

Visit Jacksonville is forecasting a 75% decline compared to the 2020 Gator Bowl.
