The University of New Mexico wants people to have zero problems parking at two major sports events Saturday.

On that day, the university will host the Gildan New Mexico Bowl at 11 a.m., and the "Rio Grande rivalry" basketball game between the UNM Lobos and New Mexico State at 4:05 p.m.

That's why the school has issued a parking plan for the day to make parking easy for fans.

Here are UNM's tips to make getting to the game as easy as possible.

- If you have a Men’s basketball permit and will be attending the New Mexico Bowl, you will be allowed into your parking lot when all parking lots open for the NM Bowl, which is at 6 a.m.

- It is anticipated that the Gildan New Mexico Bowl will end around 2:30, and the recommendation is to wait until 3:15 to arrive to the Men’s basketball game, which should allow sufficient time for the lots to clear from the Gildan New Mexico Bowl.

- The best route to enter the Stadium West parking lot for Men’s basketball is Gibson to University and right into the parking lot.

-If you do not have a parking pass for the Men’s basketball game, and will be paying to park, please use Lead/Coal to University and turn right into the Science and Technology or CNM Parking areas.

-If you have a Pit Parking pass, please use eastbound Avenida Cesar Chavez (Do not come West Bound, you will not be allowed to turn left into that parking lot) and use the first entrance into the Pit parking lot.

- Avoid all left hand turns into any parking areas for the men’s basketball game, turn right into all parking lots.

-All RVs will be parked in the Stadium East lot. No RVs will be allowed to park adjacent to The Pit.
