PARKING and TAILGATING for Advocare Classic Michigan vs Florida

College football is right around the corner, and perhaps the best game of the first weekend will be in Arlington! You can bet that this will be a sellout, and that the crowds will be arriving early to tailgate. As such, we strongly recommended that you BUY PARKING ONLINE IN ADVANCE in one of the private lots that surround the stadium, and avoid the game-day parking frustrations such as sold-out lots or high-priced lots that accept cash only or don't allow tailgating. Most of the lots at that link do allow tailgating - with fewer restrictions than you will find in the official Cowboys lots. Official Cowboys lots restrict tailgating to only the perimeter spots that back up to grass (less than 10% of all spots), so be sure to get there when lots open at 9am in order to get one of these first-come-first-serve spots if you intend on parking in one of the offical Cowboys lots (Blue or Gray lots 1-15).

All Inclusive tailgate for Michigan-Florida

Fans of both the Florida Gators and Michigan Wolverines are invited to attend an all-inclusive tailgate at the Fishbone Grill. Your $55 ticket includes beer, margaritas, wine, a catered BBQ buffet, live DJ, with contests and prizes. A cash bar is also available. Buy Tickets Today at early-bird pricing, before the tailgate sells out or prices rise!
