Some Tailgating Lots Will Be Closed Saturday Due To Weather

Even though this Saturday’s game against Maryland is for Homecoming, some fans may not be able to tailgate as usual, according to the Centre Daily Times.

Penn State announced in a press release Thursday some parking (read: tailgating) lots will be closed for the Maryland game “due to cooler, damp conditions, damage to the fields at last week’s game and the potential for inclement weather.”

The Brown lot, Family Friendly lot, and Yellow Lot 12 (better known as the IM Fields) will all be closed this Saturday.

The university decided to close these lots “in order to preserve campus student recreation’s interest in the IM Fields,” the release said. They must not consider tailgating a recreational sport, but for the record, it is just that.

Brown parking permits will be valid for parking in the orange lot and blue lot, and yellow pass holders who would park in Lot 12 should park in the yellow lots on the east side of Beaver Stadium.

The week’s game kicks off at noon at Beaver Stadium and will also feature the crowning of the king & queen from the 2016 Homecoming student court. Happy tailgating, folks!
