Important info for home football game Saturday

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

The campus will look a little different on Saturday as we prepare to host thousands of guests at our football game that afternoon at 1:00 p.m. Here are some things to make note of:

Bauman Parking Lot
Be sure to move your cars out of the Bauman parking lot on Friday evening. This space will be dedicated to vendors and tailgating on Saturday. Stop by on Saturday and check out all of the food and activities happening before the game!

Entrances to the football game
There will be two entrances into the game and both are located in the Bauman parking lot directly behind the stadium.

Wheeler Sports Center closed
The Wheeler Sports Center will be closed from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. This means the basketball gym, racquetball courts and locker rooms will be closed. The Fitness Center will remain open for normal business hours, but you will need to enter through the hallway entrance located on the field level toward the end of the building near the tennis courts. There will be security officers who will ask you where you are headed; just let them know that you are going to work out.

Bauman Walkway
The sidewalk located between the football stadium and Bauman will be closed. Please walk around the building, and do not move the barricade.

If you see a barricade, it is there for a reason. Please do not move them, jump over them, crawl under them or unlock them.

Circle Parking Lot
The circle parking lot near Wheeler will be closed for the day. This space is reserved for officials to park in. Officials will arrive as early as 8:30 a.m.

Sideline Passes
No one will be granted field access without a sideline pass. Sideline passes are issued to those who are required to work and/or have official business during the game.

Students and staff can show their ID cards at the gate to get into the game. Additional tickets can be purchased online or at the gate by visiting

We hope to see you at the game at 1:00 p.m. and the tailgates prior to that!
