ASU had $10 parking in the field down from the stadium on the home side...AVOID it! park for free at the basketball arena and it will/could be a closer walk. If you get there early they will direct you to the back of the lot. I don't know if it's legal but if you find a open spot you can pull right off the road onto the grass. There are some pay lots off E Johnson Rd also.

UL-L free parking at the basketball arena and a easy walk under the tunnel to the visitor side

Texas St we used handicap parking and parked in the lot right beside the stadium on the visitor side cost us $10. There are other lots by the stadium and across the street by the rail road tracks

USA will scare the crap out of some people because of the neighborhood. Pay no attention to it because you and your car will be safe. If you have a handicap pass you can park in the lot right by the stadium. My wife had to stay at the hotel because her back was hurting so I didn't feel right about using it. We parked for $5 about two blocks away in a lot with a guard. There's a ton of houses that open their yards for parking...mostly $10 close to the stadium.

GSU was $5 right across from the stadium in a private lot. You can park in the event lot for $10 but it's a farther walk

Troy was a pay lot but I can't remember the cost I'm going to say $5 and it was a long walk

Ladd's supposedly bad neighborhood is way overblown. Its working class and not-white. That doesn't mean its some anachronism from some gang movie. I've never heard of any crime of any kind that has happened to any patron or their vehicle attending an event at Ladd. People walk to nighttime events there. Its two blocks from a good neighborhood and five blocks from a very nice and expensive neighborhood. Ladd is not Legion Field. Basically, unless you are handicapped, you have to pay to park. Either 5 or 10 bucks. I usually grab some barbeque from the people having cookouts on their front yard to sell to passers-by. Its not complicated there. And the parking usually is really quite convenient. You just are parking in someones front yard instead of in a lot. That being said, if you stay on the North Side of the stadium, its not as jarring to those expecting an (ahem) suburban outside the stadium experience. The people who rent out their lawns as parking want people to come back and park in their yard. Your car is probably safer in their yard than it would be in a traditional stadium parking lot.

At Texas State you have to pay for football. I think we paid 10 bucks.

On our first game trip to USA my wife and I took a cab to the stadium. After the game we were still at the stadium way after the game and in fact after the team bus had left. We probably waited an hour for a cab. At no point did I feel like I was in some dangerous neighborhood or that it was not safe.

Yea taking cabs in Mobile can be a bit time consuming. You're better off just renting a car.

Lesson learned. Was still a fun time.
