Tommy Trojan Travel Tips

Portland Pep Rally - Check out the Heathman Hotel for the big pep rally, which will party from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30. Yes, the Trojan Marching Band and those awesome Song Girls will be there to lead the troops.

Driving Insider – With a 12:30 p.m. kickoff, if you're are driving from Portland, you better be on the road by 8:00 a.m. because traffic gets really crowded, and it can be up to two hours or longer to get to Corvallis on game day.

Trojan Game Day Tailgate and Rally – Head over to the OSU LaSells Stewart Center three hours prior to the game and show your Trojan spirit.

Fan Fair - Dubbed Beaver Boulevard in Parker Plaza, it's the official Beaver football pre-game party. Trojan fans, this is the spot to enjoy live music, interactive games, and numerous giveaways. Fan Fair opens three hour prior to game time and it's free.

Beaver Walk - Trojan faithful can scout the Beavers approximately two hours prior to kickoff. The OSU team bus arrives at Ralph Miller Drive, adjacent to Fan Fair. Check with the security staff at the stadium for the specific location for the arrival of the Trojans' busses.

Reser Stadium – Check out Game Ops Commander, a music DJ system developed by the Portland Trail Blazers, for the pre-game music played over the public address system. A new team entrance video will be played on the Jumbotron as the Beavers enter the field.

Fireworks will be launched from the roof tops of both grandstands over the field for a visual effect. Trojan fans can do their own comparison shopping between team entrances of the Coliseum and Reiser Stadium.

Parking - The lots along the north edge of campus require a $5 per vehicle fee to park on game-day. All other lots are $10 pay lots or Athletic Issued Permit Only. Recreational Vehicles will not be permitted in these lots and will need to use the pay RV lot at 35th Street and Campus Way. The cost for an RV is $40. RVs can park after 5 p.m. the day before the game and stay thru Sunday night. The Benton County Fairgrounds also offers RV parking with water and hookups for a nightly fee.
