Tailgating Bobcat fans will have new rules to abide by beginning Sept. 7 for the first home football game of the season against Prairie View A&M.
According to the athletic department’s website, tailgating spaces will be claimed on a first come, first serve basis. Each space will cost $10, and groups can purchase as many spaces as needed. Tailgating will be located in the Strahan Coliseum parking lot, but single space tailgating is allowed for free in all open lots other than Bobcat Alley. Tailgating at Strahan will be open from 8 a.m. to kick-off, according to the website. Vanessa Cortez, Associated Student Government president, said she sits on the tailgate committee along with representatives from the University Police Department, Parking Services and athletics.
