Information for LSU Fans Heading to Tuscaloosa on Nov. 5

The November 5th game against LSU and Alabama is expected to be the largest crowd ever in Tuscaloosa.

Bryant-Denny stadium can seat up to 101,000 fans, but the University of Alabama is expecting more than 140,000 fans on game day.

UA is asking that for LSU fans to be aware of the rules and regulations at Bryant-Denny stadium to make this game as fun and safe as possible.

Here is a website that has up to date information on parking, tailgating, traffic, and RV parking www.uagameday.com<http://www.uagameday.com.

Here are a few highlights:

  • ·On-campus RV parking is sold out but our website lists several off-campus properties that have availability for the game weekend.
  • ·Public parking is available on the east side of campus near the Rec Center and the Medical Center.  It is $30/vehicle in paved lots.  You can purchase a paved lot parking pass online and print the pass at home for $25.  Grass parking is also available on the east side of campus for $20 on a first come/first serve basis.  The Crimson Ride transit system serves this area and drops fans off at the Quad, just two blocks from Bryant Denny Stadium.  These shuttles begin running at 7 a.m. on game day and run for 90 minutes post game.
  • ·Parking for people with disabilities is on a first come/first serve basis as well. We have three lots near the stadium and a parking deck/surface lot off of Campus Drive for $30.00 on game day that is served by buses to the stadium. The shuttles to the stadium will begin 3 hours prior to kickoff.
  • ·There is off-site parking in downtown Tuscaloosa and at University Mall.  Both of these areas provide shuttles to and from the stadium.
  • ·Tailgating is regulated on the Quad and the rules for set up are found at www.uagameday.com<http://www.uagameday.com>.
  • ·If you are coming from the west into Tuscaloosa, use I-359 through downtown Tuscaloosa to campus. If you are coming from the east, stay off of I-459 and take 20/59 all the way from Birmingham. There some alternate routes listed on the website for you to consider if you are coming from the east. You can also be a fan of us on Facebook by searching UA Gameday or you can follow us on Twitter for up-to-the-minute game day information at @uagameday.

    Sinkholes in the road are an issue all over Lake Charles and a pretty common sight in the Downtown area. Drivers usually have to dodge the cones, especially on Division Street. If you drive down the stretch of Division Street, in between Ryan and Bilbo, you're probably used to avoiding a sinkhole. The most recent one was fixed Tuesday, caused by a cracked drainage line under the street where water seeped out and created a void. “They just go in, cut out a section and pour as...
