The University Park Undergraduate Association (UPUA) is proud to announce the second iteration of its popular “Blue & White Brigade,” a new program that provides transportation to away football games for students. The Blue and White Brigade will travel to the Ohio State football game at Ohio Stadium in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday, Oct. 26 at 8:00 p.m. to give Penn State students a safe way to travel and cheer on their team.
“After the success of the Blue & White Brigade to MetLife stadium earlier this year, we’re happy to announce the second trip the Blue & White Brigade will make to Ohio Stadium,” said Brenden Dooley, vice president of the University Park Undergraduate Association. “We’ve changed the registration process for the Ohio State game, and we hope this will allow us to reach even more students interested in going to the game to support our team.”
Registration for the Ohio State game will open at 7 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 21, 2013. UPUA Representatives will be outside the ticket office of the Bryce Jordan Center with laptops so that students who have purchased student tickets may sign up. This process differs from the Syracuse game, as it requires students to physically be at a location rather than just sign an online form. Like the Syracuse game, each student must have his or her PSU ID with their 9-digit number and enter his or her phone number and email address to reserve their seat. You must have proof of a ticket purchase to sign up, but it doesn’t have to be purchased at the BJC ticket office.
Three Fullington coach buses will travel to Ohio Stadium with a total of 150 seats available. Seats may be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Students are responsible for buying their own ticket for entrance to the game, and must have one to be eligible to sign up.
A tentative timeline for the trip is as follows:
Date: October 26th, 2013
Depart Penn State (HUB): 10:30 a.m.
Travel Time: 6 hours (including two 30 minute stops)
