BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Before the Southern University Jaguars take on the Alabama A&M Bulldogs at 6 p.m. Saturday, the athletics department is expecting large crowds and wants fans to be aware of parking, tailgating and more.

The Southern Univerity Athletics Department asks that fans arrive early and have their electronic tickets downloaded before coming to campus. Printed tickets from the SU ticket office will work at the entry gates.

Parking areas will be available on a first-come basis, and shuttles will be available in certain areas to bring fans to the stadium.


Fans who park in the paid or reserved lots must have their hang tags visible on vehicles or risk being towed or ticketed. Areas on Isabel Herson Drive or the Southern University Laboratory School will be available for parking. General parking is $20, and will only be made available on game day.

The university asks that fans use the Limited Mobility/Reserved Lot manifest for a complete list of lots and available shuttle locations. See that here.
