Blue And White Brigade Offers Transportation To Hockey’s Michigan State Game

There are still spots open on the Blue and White Brigade’s free bus to the men’s hockey game at Michigan State on Saturday, February 13.

Fans will depart from the HUB at 8:30 a.m. on game day to catch the 7 p.m. puck drop in East Lansing. The Brigade intends on leaving right after the game for a 6 a.m. arrival in State College. (That means Valentines day plans and Sunday afternoons stay intact.)

The Blue and White Brigade is an initiative sponsored by UPUA, created to send students to Penn State’s away games as inexpensively and easily as possible. The 47-student trip to Michigan State is its final installment of the semester.

“This is a great opportunity to support Penn State while visiting the campus of one of our Big Ten peers,” said UPUA Rpresentative Brent Rice. UPUA also worked out a deal with Penn State Athletics to provide students $15 tickets, when they typically run into the hundreds.

At No. 16 in the country and No. 3 in the Big Ten, Penn State (16-7-3) is enjoying all kinds of success this season. Michigan State (6-18-2) has struggled a bit more. After dropping a Michigan series at Madison Square Garden then facing red-hot Minnesota, the Nittany Lions will look for a clean win against the Spartans.
