The following information is as of 7 a.m. Saturday; more updates are not anticipated:

• U-M Golf Course: The primary parking areas (entrances off State Street and Main Street) will be closed, and the Green Lot (entrance off Stadium Blvd.) will be permit only (no cash sales).

• Ann Arbor Golf & Outing Club: Members and season passes only (no cash sales).

Parking lots will open at noon for the Notre Dame game. As is the case for all games, vehicles are prohibited from lining up on the streets prior to the parking lots opening around the city and U-M campus. Fans will be asked to keep moving and will not be allowed to form lines.
