I'll check both the lots out. My wife and me are still students at heart so quieter/closer don't mean better for us though lol. Looking forward to seeing your stadium (it'll be D1A #24 for me) and chatting with your fans. Here's also hoping for a competitive & injury-free game. Thanks guys, see ya at the game!!

If you want excitement and a collegiate game experience, the Secor lot is the place. Get there early- people take up two or three spaces and parking gets tough near game time. Take some time to walk around- it's a beautiful urban campus.

Should I buy tickets in advance??? im assuming the game won't sell out so I was gonna walk up and buy at gate, but you guys are having a great year up there so wasn't sure if doing so would be reliable or not. Thanks in advance.

Game won't sell out, although buying online, gives you a better opportunity to pick the seats that you want.

OK good to know. We don't care where we are as long as we are in the stadium. We were gonna check out the Great Lakes museum and Maumee Bay Brewery while in town....Anything else you guys would recommend??? Also, I'm assuming best tailgating is in stadium lot- does that sell out fast or is their ample parking there? Thanks for all the help.

If you're a fan of breweries, also check out Black Cloister Brewery. They opened in the spring and have some excellent beers. It's a very neat place and not far from Maumee Bay Brewery.

How early before the game does tailgaiting start? I was thinking about getting to campus a few hours early, but a lot of places are different about how early you can start... I've been to a couple stadiums that only allowed a couple hours before the game and others (just was at NCState) that allowed as much as 5 hours.

Got into town yesterday at 11am did the Great Lakes museum (had a good time very informative exhibits) and lunch at Blarneys Pub. We wanted to check out the Black Coister cos we walked right by it and unfortunately it was closed. We did hit Maumee Bay and it was pheonominal. They have a great Breakfast Stout. We got a growler of the Kölch to Tailgaite with today. Been to numerous breweries across country and it ranked among the best. The Oliver House is the perfect setting for the brew pub- loved it. Also got to mingle with the staff and some patrons there and couldn't have asked for nicer people to talk to.

You should be able to head over and start tailgating any time now.

Glad you had a great visit, sorry our football team wasn't more hospitable.

Lol. We won't hold it against you! As advised we found the Secor lot and it lived up to the billing. I've seen WM, Miami, Akron, Kent & BGSU out of the MAC and I think Glass Bowl has been the best stadium of the bunch. Lots of character, I love the castle/fortress-esque theme- felt like we were watching a game in Winterfell (Game of Thrones reference :)...

Only thing that could've made trip better would've been a Kent win (or at lease a competive game), but can't always get what we wish for haha. Have a great rest of the season. I'll be pulling for you guys in the NIU game- let's bring the MAC title back to Ohio and keep it here.
