3. Tailgater Parking.

There will be ample parking in the Cabela’s lot for tailgate attendees. It is a short walk from the tailgate to the stadium, so you can leave your car at Cabela’s if you would rather avoid stadium parking. If there are any guests who need assistance getting from the tailgate to the stadium, please let President Alan Weigel know so we can make arrangements to accommodate your needs.

Go Navy! Beat UConn! Beat Army!
