Parking will be affected by Saturday’s game
The Cougars will take on the University of Central Florida Saturday. While home games seem cause for celebration, some students have complained about parking changes.
Many of the surface lots that students with permits normally use will close midnight Friday and convert to donor and cash lots. Parking and Transportation said that all vehicles have to be removed from these lots by that time and will offer several alternatives.
Some students, however, have expressing their anger through social media over not being able to park in lots for which they have purchased permits.

Closed streets, shuttles
As usual, Cullen Boulevard between Holman Street and Cougar Place will close Saturday from 6 a.m. to an hour after the game ends.
At the Energy Research Park, there will be parking but no active shuttles.
Where not to park
The East, Welcome Center and Welcome Center Student Parking Garages will use cash parking starting four hours before kickoff at 7 a.m. Saturday. Students who hold permits will not be able to park in their usual garage unless they pay the entrance fee.
The Stadium Garage will close at midnight Friday ahead of the game.
Lots 12A, 12B, 15C, 16B, 16D, 16E, 16G and 18A will close midnight Friday in preparation for their usage as donor lots.
According to the Parking and Transportation website, all vehicles must be moved from those lots by midnight or risk being towed. Vehicles can go to lots 8A, 9B, 9C or 4A.
Lots 1B, 6A, 9B, 9C, 17C, 17D, 19C, 19E, 20A, 20C and 21B will convert into cash lots four hours before kickoff. Students with a Cougar Card can park in lots 8A, 9B, 9C and 4A for free. Vehicles still in any of these lots after that time will not be towed.
