Fans heading to Green Bay for the Vikings-Packers game Saturday may notice extra security.

Stadium and law enforcement personnel will be extra vigilant at the game.

With Saturday night playoffs, and a division rival- alcohol sales will be stopped at the beginning of the third quarter.

Sales are usually stopped at the end of the third.

Meanwhile, Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak and Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt have a friendly wager for Saturday's game between the Vikings and Packers.

According to the City of Minneapolis, Rybak will wager house-made sausages from Butcher and the Boar, and Schmitt has offered up BelGioioso cheese, Sno-cap Root Beer from Titletown Brewing Company and Beernsten's Candies.

“Three hundred and sixty-two days a year, I represent a city near the border with many wonderful people from Wisconsin. Saturday night, however, my blood will run purple and Viking horns will spear the Cheeseheads,” Mayor Rybak said.

“I’m looking forward to giving new meaning to ‘Skol, Vikings!’ with a good chug of Green Bay root beer and a side of Green Bay cheese,” he said.
