Penn State-Pitt gameday parking sold out; lots to open early
Penn State’s parking lots around Beaver Stadium will open at 6:30 a.m. Saturday — 30 minutes earlier than usual — but fans who don’t already have parking permits will be out of luck for the Pitt game.
According to the athletics department, the game-day parking permits for Saturday’s matchup against the Panthers were completely sold out by Wednesday night. That means no cash lots around Beaver Stadium will be available Saturday, forcing those without permits to find other arrangements.
Penn State outlined several other alternatives for fans in a news release. Among them:
• CATA and Fullington shuttles, or Uber
• Campus parking decks and lots, including Red A at West Campus, East, Eisenhower (Cash only) and Nittany (Use West Zone to get here)
• Downtown State College parking decks (Use West Zone to get here)
• Grange Fair Satellite Lot
Saturday’s game is expected to be near capacity for a stadium that can fit in excess of 110,000 fans. The last time Pitt visited Beaver Stadium, in 2017, the attendance set a season high with 109,898.
This will be the final meeting between the two historic rivals for, potentially, more than a decade. It is the 100th meeting of the series.
