Bayou Classic fans will be able to get a little more than a football game in New Orleans on Saturday.

The state health department is giving free tests for the AIDS virus.

It's part of a daylong health fair outside the Superdome, where Southern and Grambling will be battling on the gridiron.

32% of Louisiana's population is black, but three-quarters of the people with the new HIV diagnoses were black.

The department is hoping to test between 300 and 500 people.
