More than 2.5 million Texans will likely travel this Labor Day weekend, according to AAA Texas. 

If that predication holds true, it would be the highest number of Texans to travel for Labor Day in six years and a nearly 2 percent increase from last year.

The vast majority of those traveling for the holiday weekend will do so by car, AAA says.

Here in Houston, a lot of travelers are coming to the city this weekend to see the Louisiana State University Tigers take on the University of Wisconsin Badgers in the inaugural Advocare Texas Kickoff. The game marks the beginning of the season for both teams.
