Given the number of folks that are going to the Stanford Game on Saturday night, either from the Bay Area or traveling in for the game, I figure that an informational/organizational thread is in order. While I am using this post to provide some basic gameday info, feel free to use the comments to ask any questions that come to mind, roll call or any organizing with other people here that you wish.
Tickets: There are reserved tickets remaining for sale through the Stanford ticket office, ranging from $25-45/each. The UCLA sections are in the northeastern corner of Stanford Stadium - 126/226-128/228, so for anyone looking to buy tickets, sections 229-230 will put you closest to the Bruin group. For people already holding General Admission tickets, try sitting in the north endzone. Last time I checked, Stubhub still had plenty of tickets available for the game, many of which are being offered well below face value, even factoring in fees - if you go this route, look for tickets with electronic delivery, rather than being forced to deal with the fees and hassle of overnight FedEx. Additionally, there may still be Bruin Bash tickets remaining. Click through here for ordering information.
Parking and Transportation: Starting this season, Stanford has eliminated free parking for football games. The single game parking fee is $15/vehicle; tailgating is permitted in all parking lots. Parking map and info is here. For people coming from San Jose, San Francisco or the East Bay (via BART connection), Caltrain will be running before and immediately after the game, stopping at Stanford Stadium as well as the normal University Ave station. Schedule linked here.
For anyone getting to Palo Alto early on Saturday and without a tailgate, there is not much adjacent to the stadium, though there are several bars and restaurants on University Ave, about 1/2-3/4 mile walk from the stadium. Among these is the usual Peninsula/South Bay Bruin gameday hangout The Old Pro. Obviously no watch party there on Saturday, but still a place to have lunch or a beer and watch the afternoon games before heading to our game.
