Parking:  U of L will be having classes on Thursday and Friday.  You may park for free at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium off Floyd Street.  Once parked walk north on Floyd Street past the McDonald’s to arrive at the Owsley Frazier Stadium.  Saturday parking should be free in the parking garage across from the stadium.
