Never been to NRG...
Is there stuff to do around stadium before game? Also, would it be easier to catch a cab from hotel or is there plenty of parking?

There's like a holiday inn express that everyone goes to drink at. Nothing around the stadium.

it was extremely tough to get an Uber after the game a few years back when we played UW there

Uber does drop off and pick up zones now. I haven't done it but i hear its much better than the cab situation.

after the wisco game, we had to walk a good mile to catch a cab

Don't ride the light rail. That was a gigantic shite show when we played Wisconsin. Very very high stress with people jammed in and people trying to get on.

There's nothing good near NRG. Uber will have a ridiculous surge.

Best bet is to hit the bars in Midtown and take the light rail down. It will be packed and leaving may take a while but it's not that bad.

i'm hoping BYU brings way less people than Wisconsin, and the rail is ok after the game.

Hopefully but that experience on the light rail was terrible last time. We waited hours to get on and stressed out people were fighting with each other.

That's the exact reason I'm getting a parking pass this time.

I hope the parking lots clear out quickly so my Uber Chopper can get in and out with ease.

Download Uber when you get to Houston. You'll get a $30 credit for your first ride. Have your SO do that same thing for the way back. That's what we did for the Wisky game 3 years ago

For the Wisconsin game in Houston we drove ourselves and parked in the stadium's parking lot. This is what I would recommend. I don't remember any nice bars or restaurants around there but the LSU tailgating scene does get transported there in full force. You will see plenty familiar faces.

I know it's hard to believe! But as I stated earlier. Town of 900 that I live in doesn't have uber, don't even have lyft. So, I've never ubered or lyfted. Sorry bro!
