Tailgate Tickets - When you purchased tailgate tickets you received a ticket from Eventbrite via email. We will have a registration desk at the front of the tailgate where you can show your ticket (printed or digital) or the name of the person who purchased it. Either option works. After you are confirmed you will be given a wristband for your food and shirt.

Game Tickets - If you purchased game tickets, you should have received an email to transfer your tickets from the University of Arkansas last Saturday. If not, check your spam folder. If you do not see yours please reach out to us.

Food drive - As part of the Tailgate, we are hosting a food drive with St. James Missionary Baptist Church food pantry of Fayetteville. They are specifically looking for the items below, but bringing anything nonperishable is great. Let's fill this food pantry and show the community what BYU is all about.

Canned meats, Sugar, Cooking oil, Oats, Refried beans in a can, Bouillon cubes, Canned tomatoes, Corn or flour tortillas, Dried beans (pinto, black, navy), Masa, Baking powder, Chicken broth, Ramen noodles, Cup of noodles

Parking - Parking is limited at the park. We encourage you to carpool. The park is only a mile from the stadium, so hopefully you will be able to park once and walk to both game and tailgate. See the map attached.

Sports Nation - Spencer Linton of BYU Sports Nation will be broadcasting on-site from Dogwood Golf course in Bella Vista at 11 a.m. on Friday, September 15th. Go watch him at the golf course and get excited for the game!
