In a matter of hours tens of thousands of football fans will fill the Autozone Liberty Bowl, as the University of Memphis Tigers take on the Iowa State Cyclones.
"GO TIGERS," football fan Eddie Crosslin screamed.
Before die-hard fans like Eddie Crosslin and Marty Cooper make their way inside the stadium, first things first--and that's finding a place to park their camper.
"Parking sold out in probably two or three hours the day it went on sale," Crosslin said.
Many fans were ready, nabbing a space before they were gone.
"If you don't get out here early and get set up, you can forget it," football fan Marty Cooper said.
Getting in postilion more than 24 hours before kickoff, is part of the process Crosslin told FOX 13.
"People are fighting for parking right now especially with as cold as it is they are wanting to get close."
In fact before the Tigers made it to the Bowl, the University announced for the first time in program history the season parking passes sold out.
"All the fans--you know everybody is nice to everybody," Cooper said. "The Memphis fans are some of the nicest fans. They don't try to jump on the other team."
Parking is at a premium, automobiles can pay $20 cash to park along Tiger Lane.
