Homecoming Tailgate


North Texas 2017 Homecoming: Nov. 6-11

The 2017 North Texas Homecoming week will culminate with the annual homecoming football game, which this year is against UTEP on Saturday, November 11, at 4 p.m.

Celebrate homecoming by tailgating Saturday afternoon before the game. With a Tent and Ticket Package, you can provide your group with a tent, tables, chairs, food and drink, and game tickets. We'll set up the tent, table, and chairs; you can bring your own food or have your tailgate catered by one of our preferred caterers. Then come to Apogee Stadium to cheer on the Mean Green.

This year's homecoming tailgate village is located near the Alumni Pavilion at the base of the pedestrian bridge and extending south along the I-35 South frontage road. Tailgating festivities are recommended to start at 12:30 p.m. and conclude no later than 3:30 p.m., thirty minutes prior to kickoff.

Homecoming Tailgating Map

The parking lot off the I-35E south frontage road (the former Radison parking lot, shown on the map below) is accessible. Vehicles without a pass will not be permitted to park in this area. Tailgate equipment drop-off is permitted this lot, but those vehicles without a parking pass will need to park in the Fouts Field / Orange lot at $10 per vehicle. Additional free parking is available in the lots on campus. The pedestrian Bridge is the safest and easiest access to the Apogee stadium grounds.
