    Student Tailgating Question

    Hey everyone, I am planning to tailgate in the "official" JTS lots for the first time Saturday as a student and have a couple questions.

    Are the student lots are G2 and G3? Looks like the unofficial stuff says that but I want to be sure I'm not missing anything.

    When will those lots open? I have seen 6 hours before kickoff, but I have also seen 6 hours before or 7am, whichever is earlier.

    When will people start showing up (do I need to be there before it opens to get a good spot)?

    Any other tips?

    Thanks in advance.

    Pound lots of cheap beer and **** in the trees. The porta-potties are for the dirty deed.

    Re: Student Tailgating Question

    G2 or G3 is where you'll want to be.

    6 hours before kick for afternoon and evening games. Not sure if 7am is when they open for 11 games or not.

    People will probably get there 7-8 hours before kick (1-2 before lots open). You don't need to get there that early, we went right when the lots opened, waited in line for 20 minutes, and had a good spot for the Tulsa game.

    Tips? Have fun!

    The general public lots (which is what the "student lots" are) open 6 hours before each game. Donner lots open 6 hours before the game, or 7AM, whichever is earlier.

    Don't park there. You may be eaten.
