(BLOOMINGTON) – Following two straight weeks of tune-up games to open Indiana’s season, the competition level gets cranked up all the way as the No. 6-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes prepare to march into Memorial Stadium in Bloomington on Saturday for the 91st meeting between these two teams.
Indiana University has a number of parking options still available for Saturday’s football game against Ohio State (see interactive parking map). While all pre-paid options for the surface lots and grass lots in and around the IU Athletics complex are no longer available, the fan can still consider one of the following possibilities:
Day of Game Auxiliary Lots – $20
IU Athletics has a series of auxiliary parking lots around the IU campus that can be found on the map in pink. These lots offer $20 day-of-game parking while space remains.

GETTING TO THE GAME
The Indiana Department of Transportation (“INDOT”) has advised that there are several ongoing traffic projects that could impact travel times from various points around the state for Saturday’s game. Because the impact of these projects is constantly evolving and changing, INDOT advises that fans should utilize the following tools:
Waze, a community-based traffic and navigation app, will be used to communicate traffic patterns in real-time. Fans are strongly encouraged to download it and utilize it during their trip to Memorial Stadium. The app will automatically update the football pre and postgame traffic pattern as they go into effect. Download it here.
TrafficWise can be found on INDOT’s website and provides information about traffic conditions, road closures, traffic cameras, travel times and message boards. Fans can also call 1-800-261-7623 for updates. Current Restrictions/Closings.
Fans can opt in to the text alert system by texting IUFB to 313131 to begin receiving alerts from IU Athletics. Only pertinent information surrounding travel, traffic, weather, and emergency situations will be shared on the text system.S
