Some NCAA teams have interesting traditions, but only one drives a 1930 Ford Model A Sport coupe onto the field at every home game at Bobby Dodd Stadium; the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and the Ramblin’ Wreck. While Georgia Tech doesn’t have to find a spot for the Ramblin’ Wreck, Bobby Dodd Stadium parking can be a challenge, especially when they’re playing against Georgia. Bobby Dodd Stadium is officially “Bobby Dodd Stadium at Historic Grant Field,” with Grant Field being the original name. The venue has been renovated numerous times, so it’s an almost entirely different structure from when it was built in 1913 in downtown Atlanta.
Bobby Dodd played for the team, and went on to coach from 1945 to 1967, racking up 165 career coaching wins, two SEC championships, nine bowl games and the National Title in 1952, which was a perfect 12-0 season. Now a member of the ACC, Georgia Tech football has gotten more popular over the years, making it more difficult to find Yellow Jackets Football parking spaces. If you plan ahead and book your Bobby Dodd Stadium parking spot ahead of time with ParkWhiz, you can save yourself both time and frustration.
The most lopsided game in college football happened at the site of Bobby Dodd Stadium in 1916, where the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets beat the Cumberland Bulldogs 222-0, a feat which has never been topped. During this time, Georgia Tech had John Heisman as its head coach. Previously in the season, Cumberland had defeated Georgia Tech 22-0 during one game, supposedly with ringers. After Cumberland decided to discontinue play for the season, Heisman demanded they face Georgia Tech, or else pay a fine. Cumberland had 14 normal players come to Georgia Tech, and got his revenge as he ran up the score against his foe. While you shouldn’t plan for revenge, planning ahead for sporting events is always smart, especially when it comes to NCAA games. It’s best to book your Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Football parking spot in advance with ParkWhiz.
All you need to do is find your Georgia Tech football game, book your Yellow Jackets football parking spot and print your ParkWhiz parking pass. Bring your pass with you to Bobby Dodd Stadium, and then just enjoy the game.
