So, as you all know, Penn State travels to Philadelphia to face the Owls of Temple this weekend.
The game is a 12 noon - at Lincoln Financial Field - 1 Lincoln Financial Field Way; Philadelphia, PA 19148. The Philly Sports Complex is in South Philadelphia and is accessible by both Route 95 and Interstate 76. Driving directions to the Linc can be found here.
Parking Maps can be found here.
For those of you taking public transportation (Yeah Septa!) take the Southbound ORANGE (Broad Street Line) subway to the last stop (Pattison Ave) and follow the crowds to the stadium (tailgate!) area. Trains run all day but for specific info check out the SEPTA website for departure times and other public transport information.
Parking Lots open at 7am - Per the Lincoln Financial Field website - the place to park is Lot K - which is right next to the Linc. For Eagles games this lot is reserved, but, apparently, not so for Temple games.
They're expecting 70,000 fans at the game - so I'm thinking that they'll need to open more parking lots.
Which is what we're counting on - because we'll be tailgating in the Wachovia Center Lots (that's the plan, anyway) - I'm hoping for E, F or G -
Our ETA is 0830 (WHAT! WHAT!?!) - and we'll be tailgating before and after the game (possibly during as well) - email for cell phone numbers for day of directions. We will have a 2theLion sign (or flag - depends on how motivated I get) - We will have the blue chipmunk flag - which actually might be a little (not much) unique (maybe?).
Everyone is welcome - We hope to see you there!
