Here is the schedule of events for today.
3 PM: Tailgate lots open
4 PM: Homecoming Parade
5:30 PM: Paul Brown Stadium gates and will call open
7 PM: Kickoff
The parade route will be much shorter than it is when homecoming is at UC. It is also on game day which is a departure from the last time Cincinnati had Homecoming downtown. The parade will start at the Red's Hall of Fame and Museum on Joe Nuxhall Way and turn down E. Freedom Way and go right to Paul Brown Stadium.
Keep that in mind if you are trying to score a spot to park in the banks late, it's probably not going to happen. If you are not planning on parking in one of the main lots or over at longworth hall keep Covington in mind. When I attended the Oklahoma game I parked on the street and walked over the Roebling Bridge. Quick and easy commute, and easy to get out.
