(KHNL) - On Saturday, Aloha Stadium will host its biggest crowd this season.

That's when the University of Hawaii football team faces Oregon State in a nationally televised game.

But with only 8,000 parking spots at the stadium, where will 50,000 fans park?

"People have to remember this is the holiday shopping season, we have Pearlridge right behind us, so it's gonna be a lot of traffic on the freeways all afternoon," said Patrick Leonard with Aloha Stadium.

The gates at Aloha Stadium will open at 2:30 p.m., and the lot is expected to be completely full by 4 p.m.

Another option is to catch a shuttle. You can park at Leeward Community College for free and pay $2 for shuttle service to the stadium. Kamehameha Drive In costs $5. Roberts Hawaii is shuttling people from Hawaii Kai, Kailua and Mililani. The City Bus has 17 pickup locations. Parking your car at Radford High School is $3, but there's no shuttle service.

Fans are also being advised to carpool and to park in one space instead of taking up two spots to tailgate.

But it's too much of a hassle for some fans.

"It's really, very disappointing, you get emotionally upset," said Michael Augusta, who has tickets to the game but won't be going.

He says the parking situation is inconvenient. But he says he'll still have the best seat in the house.

"I'll wear my UH shirt, with my bottle of beer, my wife in the living room and watch the game," said Augusta.
