Depends on what you are doing. If you are setting up for tailgating, there are select lots. We will be settling up in lot 12. If you look up at&t stadium parking, it will show you the lotd

Depends on where you are going afterward. I prefer Lot 4. There is good tailgating and then after the game I take Randol Mill road all the way to George Bush Tollway and then to Plano/Allen. It is really easy to get out traffic wise that way. I'm in 4 for the 4th year in a row

Have parked in Lot 10 past 3 years and had no problems at all getting in or out of the stadium.
I parked in 10 in 2014 and 2015. we didn't have any trouble getting out. Funny thing, we were set up near the corner of lot 10 in 2015. I got there at daylight to get 3 flat pieces of ground. They won't let you in to park but you can go ahead and set up. The place finally got full and a woman with a man in tow was walking around with a p*ssed off look on her face. She went and got a parking attendant and brought him over to complain that they didn't have enough room to set up. there was a small area no one using and he told her they could set up there. They did but she was not happy about it.  What part about "first come first serve" do people not understand?

The Ag in-laws buy 3 passes and I buy 1 for #4 for tailgating together. Not sure why they like #4 but that's what we've done since the first Battle for Texarkana.

I park in my garage and either walk or Uber...........ok, I know, no help, hah


If you're a tailgater, sounds like you have some good info from others already in here, but if you're just wanting to park, there are some restaurants in the area that provide parking and shuttles to and from the JerryWorld events that might be worth checking out. And plenty of the non-JerryWorld businesses along Collins offer parking too, some much closer than some of the JerryWorld lots, don't know how they compare pricewise offhand though.

Across the street from the stadium facility is the ticket selling outlet. Sown one of those side streets is where we always park. Round 20-25 bucks.

SEC Food: Nashville’s Acme Feed & Seed

SEC Food: Nashville’s Acme Feed & Seed


Quote
In the past few years, Nashville’s legendary downtown Broadway strip has become more of a tourist trap than ever. Most locals shy away.

There’s one place in particular that has not turned them off, though: Acme Feed & Seed.

The four-floor venue features a killer trio: arguably the best food, the best live music and the best rooftop view on Broadway. Longtime Hollywood chef Tom Morales, a Nashville native, restored the centuries-old building less than a decade ago. There are bits and pieces from the 1800s all over the place, and landing spots for everyone: honky-tonk enthusiasts, the sports-bar crowd, concertgoers and rooftop relaxers, among others.

20 writers on best SEC stadium, game atmosphere and press box food, etc.
« Reply #18010 on: August 29, 2017, 04:36:47 am »

Which SEC school has the best football stadium? The most passionate fanbase? What about the best atmosphere for a game? AL.com surveyed 20 sportswriters to answer those questions among others. Those surveyed were a mix of team beat writers, columnists and national writers.


Worst pressbox food? Sorry, Jordan-Hare ☹️


Quote
LSU was the clear pick as the SEC's best game atmosphere. "Cajuns + night game + whiskey = electricity," is how one media member put it. Another said, "You can feel the crowd as much as you can hear it. Just another level of wild."

The most succinct reason for why LSU? "Everyone is drunk."

Of 2nd place finisher Alabama, one writer said "The students do a lot of singing."

 Which school has worst game atmosphere?

1) Vanderbilt -- 11 votes

T2) Kentucky, Missouri -- 3 votes each

Poor Vanderbilt was the overwhelming winner for worst game atmosphere. "It's non-existent," said one writer. "You'd find more students in the library. Downtown Nashville, on the other hand, is wonderful."

Another said: "It's basically a big high school stadium and the attendance just isn't what it is at SEC schools.'

On Mississippi State: "The cowbells are annoying and 'Don't Stop Believin' is lame."

On Kentucky: "A nice stadium and a nice campus, but lacks enthusiasm."

Best SEC stadium

1) Tiger Stadium (LSU) -- 8 votes

2) Sanford Stadium (Georgia) -- 4 votes

3) Neyland Stadium (Tennessee) -- 3 votes

4) Bryant-Denny Stadium (Alabama) -- 2 votes

T5) Arkansas, Florida and Texas A&M -- 1 vote

On Georgia's stadium: "Maybe it's because the press box is in a good spot. But also a nice stadium."

On Florida's stadium: "It's big but feels small. Fans right on top of the action."

On Tennessee's stadium: "I'm a sucker for the coliseum effect"

Williams-Brice Stadium Question
« Reply #18011 on: August 30, 2017, 09:30:20 pm »

Hey all, my wonderful wife just informed me that she is buying me tickets to the Arkansas vs South Carolina game on Oct. 7th for my birthday (thats Sept 5th). We'd really prefer to not spend over $100 on each ticket, but I was wondering if anyone had ever been there and/or had any advice on where good seating would be? I don't know what the stadium is like, so I don't know if nose-bleeds at the 50 yard line would be worth it - or if lower deck off to the sides would be better.

Any thoughts would be appreciative.

Last time the hogs played in Columbia I went.  We set lower level about 20'rows up at the 10 yard line. We could see everything. 

It is an older stadium upper level probably would not be to bad.

Went there back when Danny Ford was our coach in 95.  It was a night game and the atmosphere was awesome, beautiful stadium and great pregame activities.  Really not a bad seat in the house, but upper section you need the binoculars.  The place holds over 100,000 and Carolina fans can get rowdy, so your in for a good time.  They had Brad Scott as there coach and a better offense, but both teams had good defense, and Carolina won 14-3 I believe was the final score.

There are only a few stadiums in college football that hold over 100,000. Williams Brice holds a little over 80,000.

It is a big stadium, but capacity is closer to 82,000.

I went a few years ago, maybe 2012 or 13, I bought our away tickets through the RF and I think we were high up in the lower level in the corner if I remember right and paid around $80 for tickets.

If you're a RF member, I'd suggest going that route -- we won't sell out our allotment for a game that far away. The secondary market is probably more expensive.

Not a bad seat there. I've sat both sides, Lower and upper as well. Good time, friendly people. Make sure to stop by the Cockaboose (did I spell that right?).  We were invited to several tailgates to have a brew and chat football. It's my favorite "away" place to visit.

Sounds like it'll be a good one to go to then! In your opinion, would it be better to sit in section 505 or spend extra for section 18?

I'm going to be attending this one this year as well. Got the tickets ordered the other day. I've never been in the stadium but I was through there a few years back and joined in on a tailgate during the Clemson/South Carolina game. The parking was a hair sketchy sort of like in Fayetteville if you don't know the area...had to park a mile off.

I still haven't booked a hotel yet...im not sure where to stay. Would be nice to stay somewhere within walking distance of stadium but from memory didn't look like a set up where you could really do that.

I've been in 18 and it's a good vantage point to see the action, but if I had my preference I'd take that upper 50 every time, but that's just me. I like seeing the plays develop and to my eye it's more like having the TV angle. But you won't be disappointed either way.

Ok, thanks! I think I'm leaning to closer to the field.

I've been there a couple of times.  Once we sat about 4 rows up from the field right next to the visitor's locker room.  The other time I sat in the north end zone under the big screen.  I actually preferred the end zone seats.

I'll be there this year but my oldest son is a sophomore at USC so we will be rooting against each other.

The Razorback section tends to be in Section 1 and 2 if my memory serves correctly .. it is always fun to be around other Arkansas fans.

Have been there several times over the years when it was our crossover game.  C Dick was quarterback one year.  Visitors are put in Section 15 through 18 and 501 & 502.  I have been in all of the lower sections and 501.  Best fight that I saw was two Gamecock fans.  There was alcohol involved.

We've been a couple of times ... lower level near the goal line. No complaints at all about the view. But you can tell the fans really think there's some double-entendre cleverness in their incessant "Go Cocks" shouts. It's kind of annoying.

A great place to tailgate.  Their fans are very accommodating and have a prrty atmosphere on game day.  Go and have a good time and enjoy our Hogs eating chicken.

The last time I was there we sat in section 115 and you can see it all.

I'm not sure yet. The university still hasn't gotten the ticket allotment from South Carolina...but I'm assuming it's gonna be in the lower level.

Where are you staying at? I've still got to get that figured out. Would be real nice if didn't have to drive.

I live 3 hours away, so as much as I hate to do it, I'll probably be driving back after the game.

I probably mixed up end of the field, but yeah every year it's been in Columbia the tickets have been at the corner of the end zone/goal line area.

Tips on leaving Razorback Stadium
« Reply #18034 on: September 07, 2017, 12:13:24 pm »

After the game.

I normally drive north, long after the game ends, to my Hog weekend headquarters in Bentonville. But this time I have to head south in my homeward direction.

Our tailgate spot is straight west of the stadium, up in those neighborhoods. It seems like I need to find my way to Razorback Road (next to the stadium) and go south. Imagine there will be a lot of traffic…so just fight through it? Or is there some other secret path to getting on I-49 South?

You can take back roads to N Sang ave and then get on Wedington. Or you can take back roads to S Sang Ave and get on MLK. Both routes will take about the same amount of time

there are some back ways you can take if you get to about the middle part of Razorback road, if you're going South on Razorback you can turn right and take those roads (either Markham/Hotz/Center St) to get out to MLK and get on from there. I have always taken it when the cars in front of me took it and followed them out. It definitely beats taking Razorback all the way down and can save you 20-30 minutes if it's really bad.

You can take back roads to N Sang ave and then get on Wedington. Or you can take back roads to S Sang Ave and get on MLK. Both routes will take about the same amount of time

Agree with this. Since his tailgate area is in the neighborhoods, he doesn't have to mess with Razorback Road.

Great. Thanks. Sounds good. And FYI OnTheHillHogFan, Wedington/Sang is my way IN. I see on google maps that Sang goes south.

Or, maybe I should try and park on Markham, just to get a little closer (farther south).

If you can get to Nettleship, go west on it and meander until you get to Sang and then to MLK. I use this going north, you can keep going west and take Old Farmington Rd to get on the access road before the on ramp on 49.

After the game.

I normally drive north, long after the game ends, to my Hog weekend headquarters in Bentonville. But this time I have to head south in my homeward direction.

Our tailgate spot is straight west of the stadium, up in those neighborhoods. It seems like I need to find my way to Razorback Road (next to the stadium) and go south. Imagine there will be a lot of traffic…so just fight through it? Or is there some other secret path to getting on I-49 South?

You could always take back roads over to College Ave., and then go south on College Ave. and get on the old bypass (turn right onto the bypass diagonally across from the blue colored building store where Eddie Sutton supposedly frequented) and take the old bypass out and get on I-49.  Or, you could not get on the old bypass and continue to Greenland and get on I-49 at Greenland.

The problem with getting on I-49 in Fayetteville at Wedington is that any little aspect on I-49 can cause I-49 to slow down and back-up.  Also, just getting to and on I-49 there at Wedington can be a turn hair gray/lose hair experience.

Unfortunately since you're starting on the west side of the stadium, getting to College Ave. is next to impossible.  I recommend going north to get south.  Find a way to get on Palmer or Hartman going south.  Get to Nettleship, then take Lewis or West to W. Stone St. heading west. It will take you to the access road going north.  You can decide if the turn onto Wedington will be possible.  If it's not, turn right and the left on Porter. That takes you to the Porter/Mt. Comfort road exit where you can turn back south.  We live between Wedington and Mt. Comfort and use this to get home.

This is what I do. Saved me at least an hour after the Bama game 5 years ago.

Stick around until the team sings to the student section. By that time most have already gotten a headstart :)

Totally. Unless you are the "bail on the team at the end of the 3rd quarter" fan, just take it easy. The traffic clears pretty quickly if you don't try to rush out.

I'm handicap (wheelchair) and parking at Baum and riding the shuttle worked really well. The shuttles can accommodate a wheelchair and the staff was great.
