    Good Morning All!

    I was wondering if anyone had any insight on parking for Saturday? I know normally public lots don't open until 6 hours prior to gametime. With Gameday coming does anyone know if they might make an exception and open the lots earlier then normal Saturday? Any help would be appreciated! Go Cyclones!!!

    Nothing official yet but they almost have to considering the timing of Gameday.

    NWS says chances of storms through Thursday. Hopefully it doesn't rain too much and the grass lots have enough opportunity to dry.

    I park north of the power plant. It's a 20 minute walk, but easy to get in and out of.

    I'm assuming it's too early, but do we know where Gameday is setting up? Near the stadium or off-site, like in front of the MU?

    That'll be a great spot for GameDay. First time heading across state to JT. Should be a fun one

    I see one guy recommending HyVee as a parking spot.

    "What are they gonna do, go through every car?"

    We'll see how that works out for him.

    The number of people that park a couple miles from the stadium just to save $20 bucks blows my mind.

    I'd take a $40 ticket just to park semi close. I pay for convenience.
