Parking could be tough for UK home opener

Kentucky has two early games this season, including a home opener against Georgia Southern on Wednesday at 11 a.m. UK sports information already has issued a release encouraging those without a valid UK parking pass to park at the K-Overflow Lot, which is located across Alumni Drive from Commonwealth Stadium.

A free shuttle service will begin at 9:30 a.m. to take guests across campus (approximately 10-15 minutes) to the front of Memorial Coliseum.  Shuttle service will continue until 11:15 a.m. and then resume 1.5 hours after tip-off at the front of Memorial Coliseum until 1 hour post-game.  Shuttles will be handicap accessible, the release notes.

For complete information regarding these special parking arrangements on November 13, please visit
