All tailgaters must be on campus by 8 a.m. Saturday, and must present and display a valid tailgate pass prior to setting up. All tailgating equipment must be removed by midnight Saturday.

General parking passes will be available on the day of game, but fans are encouraged to purchase those online before arriving on campus. The cost of a parking pass is $20 in advance or $30 on game day.

Visitors approaching the campus who wish to use the General Event Parking Lot should veer right at the fork on to the Highway 552 Bypass to access the new Special Event Parking Facility. When designated parking areas are full, fans will be re-routed to other parking areas located throughout the campus.
