JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Jackson State University Tigers and fans filed into Veteran's Memorial Stadium on Saturday to support the university in the wake of the homecoming game cancellation by Gambling State University.

JSU expected 50,000 fans at Veteran's Stadium on Saturday.

Everything went on as planned, after a football scrimmage the homecoming queen was crowned. The Sonic Boom of the South performed for about 30 minutes. And a concert, free of charge and open to the public, was performed by Lyfe Jennings, Terrell C. Moses, and Larry Johnson.

The university has decided on a plan to refund the money fans spent on tickets for the football game.

"Starting probably on Monday we're gonna be setting up at different locations around campus, and what we're gonna ask is for people to come and bring us their tickets. We're gonna give them a refund for the face value of the ticket. For people that live away, are from out of town, what we ask them to do is mail us your ticket. We're gonna give you an address and we will send you a check to the name and address that's on the envelope," said JSU Executive Director of University Communications.

Jackson State estimates it lost about $500,000 in ticket and concession sales Saturday because Grambling forfeited the game.

The final numbers for attendance have not yet been obtained.
