NEED MUSIC CITY BOWL TICKETS?
If you didn’t get your tickets through the Alumni Association and still want to attend, check for availability via Ticketmaster. Looks like the End Zones, Upper Level and some Club Level seats are still available for game day.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO STADIUM RULES
Nissan Stadium has a bag policy, like most stadiums these days. So no backpacks, purses or bags are allowed into the stadium for the Music City Bowl. This policy is applied to all events at Nissan Stadium, including the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl. For a complete list of approved bags, please review this list.
Lockers will be available for checking prohibitive items and bags. The price for rental is normally $15. The lockers are available at North and South End Zones.
Parking lots will open at 8:00 a.m. CST on the morning of the game.
Will-call ticket windows will ONLY be open on game day.
