Blue & White Brigade Offers Free Trip To Ohio State For Hockey Game

This Saturday, the Blue and White Brigade will sponsor a bus trip to Ohio State for the men’s hockey game, with 100 tickets to the game. By signing up for the trip, the Brigade will provide a free bus trip and free ticket for the matchup, which starts at 7 p.m. Saturday in Columbus.

Students can reserve a seat by filling out a Google Form on the UPUA’s website. With only 100 seats, the bus is sure to fill up quickly. Make sure to sign up as soon as possible as tickets are first come, first serve.

The Blue and White Brigade, organized by the UPUA, was created to offer free transportation to sporting events. It began in 2013 to provide a way to get students to away football games, and has now diversified to cover away hockey games.

The team is coming off of a series split with No. 17 Minnesota. On Friday night, Penn State lost a nailbiter 2-1, then followed it up with a 4-3 overtime win over the Golden Gophers the next night.

Penn State and Ohio State’s first series this season, at Pegula Ice Arena, was one of the most exciting of the year and included 14 total goals scored in the split series. In the first game, Casey Bailey scored three goals and David Goodwin added another to erase a four-goal third period deficit. In the second game, Penn State ran away with a 4-1 win. In other words, if you’re a fan of hockey, this is a series you’ll want to watch.
