Clear bag policy

As much as I love going to the games, one of my favorite traditions doesn’t involve football at all, but rather the pre-game activity of choosing just the right outfit. In East Tennessee, orange and white should be worn as often as possible — for cheering on the Vols and all the other great fall activities around town.


This can really be a major stressor when you’re just trying to get to the game.  We’ve got a great map on the site – just look for the big blue “P” and find a spot.  Don’t park in the shaded orange areas and you’ll be good to go.  Here’s a sampling of price breakdown:

  • Closest to campus – Poplar St lot – $40
  • Downtown garages – $20 – Main Ave, Dwight Kessel, City County Bldg, and Locust St
  • Downtown – Civic Coliseum Garage & Blackstock Lot – $10
  • Free garages – State Street & Market Square

Bag Policy

Can you bring that bag or not?  UT requires clear bags only in Neyland Stadium for safety and can’t be larger than 12”x 6” x 12”.  Our page provides images of what you can and can’t bring into the stadium.

Knoxville Area Transit (KAT) Shuttle

There are several KAT shuttles that will get you to the game with ease, and they’re only $4!  Our site lists all the stops whether you’re coming from East, South, North, West*, or Northwest.  All routes will take you to the downtown Knoxville Station.  From there, simply go to platform “O” to board Route 11-Kingston Pike which departs every 30 minutes.  Get off at UT: Cumberland/James Agee Street.

*UT: Cumberland/James Agee is the stop before Knoxville Station on the West Route, so hop off here and you’re where you need to be!

If you’re visiting from out of town, Gentry School Bus Lines also has shuttles to most of Knoxville’s hotels.  The price is $20 per person round trip.
