Blue and White Brigade Offering Free Transportation To Rutgers
The Blue and White Brigade is back, offering free transportation to and from the Rutgers game this weekend.
With the Nittany Lions taking on the Scarlet Knights at 8 p.m. on Saturday, the brigade will leave in the early afternoon and return after the game ends. UPUA introduced the program last year, taking students to the Ohio State and Syracuse games on three Fullington coach buses.
For students hoping to travel to Rutgers for the team’s Big Ten opener, UPUA is holding sign-ups on its website until all 150 seats are filled. On the site, students will be prompted to fill in their name, 9-digit PSU ID, student email address, and a phone number. After electronically signing the form, they will receive an email asking for a proof of ticket to the game, with their seat on the bus only being reserved when the UPUA receives their ticket confirmation.
With the allotted student tickets selling out in around an hour on Monday, students will have to buy regular tickets from a third-party reseller if they intend to take advantage of the brigade.
The game is obviously a big one, with both teams 2-0 heading into this weekend. On top of that, the game will be Rutgers’ first Big Ten matchup since it joined the conference. Hopefully, UPUA can help bring even more of a Penn State advantage to New Jersey this weekend — student tickets sold out in about an hour this morning.
