UPUA To Provide Free Buses To Michigan Football Game

The University Park Undergraduate Association will bring back its Blue and White Brigade for the second time this season, providing free buses to transport students to and from the Michigan football game on Saturday, Oct. 11, according to a press release.

As long as you have a ticket to the game and a student ID, you’ll be able to hop on any of the three UPUA-funded buses free of charge. Students interested in utilizing the Blue and White Brigade service are asked to sign up in advance. A UPUA table will be set up outside of the Bryce Jordan Center on Monday, Oct. 6 starting at 7 a.m.

Tickets for the Michigan game are also being sold at the BJC in Penn State’s student section for $95, but if you already have one you can sign up online at on Monday (that’s when that link will go live). Tickets are going for a little less on the secondary market if you’d rather shop around.

The Blue and White Brigade initiative started last year as UPUA provided transportation to and from the Syracuse and Ohio State games during the 2013 season. President Anand Ganjam has continued and expanded the busing program, which was kicked off last year by his predecessor Katelyn Mullen.

UPUA asks that any questions about the Blue and White Brigade be directed to Student Life Chair Shannon Rafferty.
