KNOXVILLE (WATE) - With a holiday weekend, a home opener and a new head coach, you can expect tens of thousands of fans to crowd into campus Saturday. There's also a lot of construction on campus.

UT and city officials say the main thing you need to bring with you Saturday is patience. There are plenty of places to park, but come early and be prepared to pay.

There is no general public parking on campus. You can either park off campus and walk or take a shuttle. Fans can park for free at the newly renovated State Street garage and at the Market Square garage, Coliseum lot, the Old City, Market Square and Farragut High School.

There are also some private lots near campus where you can park and support a charity at the same time, like the Ronald McDonald House.

"We can park about 50 to 60 cars at $20 per space. It's a huge event for us," said director Sue Beverly. "The Bearden High School key club takes care of everything for us and they've raised more than $100,000 for us over the years." 

Parking is not allowed along Neyland Drive, though all lanes approaching campus are open this football season. The Henley Bridge is still closed. Phillip Fulmer Way from Cumberland to Middle Drive continues to be one lane southbound work continues on new student union.
