The city said all roads will be closed "until determined safe to reopen." Game Dey at The Banks will take place from 2 p.m. to midnight.

Cincinnati said fans who are looking for more family-friendly watch parties can go to Fountain Square from 1-11 p.m. Sunday. There will be ice skating, bumper cars, pregame music and free face painting. Newport on the Levee is hosting a watch party on the other side of the river.
