Not that I disagree with the OP....
I was at the game - left at the end - got to Bham at 8pm. Basically go anywhere but McFarland - parking downtown is much better than the Soccer field.
Hang out until the end of the game. Grab a bite to eat on the strip. People watch. Relax a bit and Enjoy the entire experience. If you don't like the crowds or the driving, stay at home and watch it on the big screen. I like watching it on tv better myself, but I try to get to a few games every year. I know when I leave the house that it is an all day, sometimes 2 or 3 day affair, and you just have to commit to all that gameday entails. Roll Tide.

West on 20/59 is not bad at all. I know it has to be bad towards Bham.
Frankly, I think threads like this don't get started after big wins.
Stuff like this shows up only after disappointing losses.
When you're sitting in traffic remembering great wins, it always makes the wait a little less painful.

Really? You think that is “bad traffic”? try driving in Atlanta every single day without there even being a game happening. If you think it is that bad mail your tickets to me for free (since you are wasting the ticket anyway by not using them). I will gladly take them to fight what you call bad traffic.

I agree 100% that traffic is an absolute nightmare, but that never stops me from going to a game. As another poster stated, you have to be creative about getting out of Tuscaloosa. For example, we made it from Tuscaloosa to Birmingham in 1 hr and 30 min going the way we leave. If you look at the map it might seem out of the way, but it sure beats setting on 20/59. I'm not giving up my way because I don't want everyone to be on that road. Just take a look at the map and you might figure it out
