Memphis Tigers vs Akansas State

HELP !!!

As a visitor to your shores over many years I have never yet managed to take in a game, well finally that day will arrive on 21st Sept when my wife and I will be at the Arkansas game ( she can't wait !!! lol ).

I've got my tickets but what else do I need to know before attending ?.

Parking ?, how can I get a spot reserved or are there buses laid on from downtown.

What time do I need to get to the stadium, what happens before the game and what time would it be expected to finish, what happens after ?. Apart from the obvious … go home !.

Best place to get something to eat, can I book ?

I'd be grateful for any answers to the above, plus any other info you feel would be of benefit.

Well the thing which football fans like to do on the day of the game is to "tailgate" or enjoy grilled or smoked food and drinks in parking lots near the stadium while sporting their teams' colors & logos and basically partying before making their way to the stadium. Tiger season ticket holders frequently do this on "Tiger Lane" which consists of several long rows of parking places running west from the main entrance to the stadium. Unless you know someone in Memphis who will bring you along or have you meet them there this won't be an option on your first game, so go at least three hours early and eat Barbecue on the deck at Central BBQ, nearby with football fans all around to get into the mood, then drive down and park somewhere off Central Avenue and walk to the stadium. There should tickets available on game day at the gate, but if you're in town before that, buy tickets in advance to make it easier to get the seats you want. After the game Overton Square along Madison Av. near Cooper St. has several pubs where fans might gather as well as the Cooper - Young area. It's good to have the BritishTiger fan base represented! The Tigers will win for sure!
