Fans asked to remember game day conduct rules.
Officials at the University of Oregon have a modest wish list for the season's first home football game, which begins today at 12:30 p.m.
They hope that Duck fans planning to watch the game at Autzen Stadium will avoid foul language and obscene gestures.
That spectators will sit in their ticketed seats and comply with requests from event staffers.
That fans will drink responsibly, if they must drink.
That they don't smuggle contraband such as alcohol into the stadium, but follow stadium guidelines, known as the "Code of ConDUCKt," and treat fellow football enthusiasts with respect.
Fans who refuse to comply with the guidelines may be kicked out the stadium and could face losing their season tickets or being barred from future games.
As usual, bags and backpacks will be searched before their owners are allowed inside the stadium. Factory sealed nonalcoholic beverages and empty plastic containers are allowed into the stadium. However, partially filled plastic containers and Thermos-like vessels are banned.
Eugene police have a list, too.
They want drivers headed to the game to prepare for traffic and to have a parking plan before they approach the stadium. Failure to obey cone patterns and officer instructions may result in a citation and a $237 fine.
They want motorists to be patient. The number of people in and around Autzen on game day equals the population of Springfield. So expect some delays.
Finally, they encourage fans to take the bus. The Lane Transit District offers shuttle service to the stadium from a number of park-and-ride locations. A round-trip ticket costs only $3.
Shuttles leave from the following locations:
Eugene Station, West 10th Avenue and Olive Street, Eugene.
Lane Events Center, West 13th Avenue and Jackson Street, Eugene.
River Road Station, River Road and Belt Line Road, Eugene.
Shasta Middle School, 4656 Barger Drive, Eugene.
Civic Stadium, West 20th Avenue and Willamette Street, Eugene.
Valley River Center, northwest parking lot near the bike path, Eugene.
Valley River Inn, 1000 Valley River Way, Eugene.
Thurston High School, 333 58th St., Springfield.
Symantec, 555 International Way, Springfield.
Springfield Station, 355 S. A St., Springfield.
In one change this year, LTD is no longer offering shuttle service from Eugene Christian Fellowship.
