BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- One of the biggest college events in Indiana is this weekend: The Little 500.
Tens of thousands will be at Indiana University for the women's race Friday and the men's race Saturday.
The campus is overflowing with students and alumni for what is billed as the world's greatest college weekend.

Police started campus patrols and are working overtime to make sure everyone is safe. Extra officers will also be looking for underage drinkers. Bad weather last year dropped the number of citations to 171. Police are reminding students and visitors of Indiana's Lifeline Law.
Another Indiana University alumni in Bloomington this weekend as grand marshal for the race is the star of 'The Bachelor,' Ben Higgins. He will be there along with his fiance, Lauren Bushnell.
The men's race starts Saturday at 2:00 p.m.
