College Football Field
“If you’d like to walk to a football game, head down the driveway, make a right and then another right on Prospect. Take a left on Willow and a right on Maple. Walk straight down Maple about a mile, pass campus and all the sorority houses and you’ll land at the U of A Football Stadium. Alternatively, about $7 and 5 minutes will have you at the game via Lyft!”
