In response to great demand from the "Penguin Nation", the Youngstown State University Department of Athletics is opening a third tailgate lot for this Saturday's clash of top 10 FCS teams when Youngstown State plays host to UNI.
The fourth-ranked Penguins, who will be going for their best start to a season since 2001, play host to the Panthers in what is the 200th game in Stambaugh Stadium history. Kickoff is set for 7:05 p.m.
The YSU Athletic Department is allowing tailgating in the M-26 lot, located at the corner of Fifth and Lincoln Avenues, for single-game tailgate passes only. The tailgate permits will go on sale Tuesday morning (9 a.m.) at the YSU Athletic Ticket Office inside Stambaugh Stadium and are $15 each. Fans must purchase two game tickets to be eligible for a tailgate permit. The tailgate lots (M-24, M-7 and now M-26) will all open at 1 p.m. this Saturday.
