Dozens of private planes will be flying into the South Bend Airport throughout the weekend.
It's expected to be one of the busiest weekends with fans arriving in planes, trains and automobiles.
Already Friday morning taxi cabs were lined up and ready to go at the South Bend Regional Airport. Cab drivers are ready to work around the clock until Sunday evening.
“With the USC game, since I started driving the cab it's the busiest,” says driver Marc Gatorano from Eagle Cab. ”With the game at night for us, as cab drivers, it’s good. We get time to take them to the airport and take them to tailgating.”
Plus it was packed at Atlantic Aviation for corporate and private jets. It's expected 200 private planes will be on the ground this weekend and that doesn't include commercial airfare.
That's pretty close to the record in 2005 during another USC game with 270 planes. Commercial airlines, like Delta, will send in larger aircrafts offering more seats.
Air traffic control plans to stay open an extra two hours Saturday night until 2 a.m. with fans flying out late.
