Catch A Ride To The Big Ten Championship Game With UPUA’s Blue & White Brigade

Update 8:00 a.m.: Due to insane demand and the fact that the buses filled in less than a minute, UPUA put out a waitlist for the Blue and White Brigade buses to Indianapolis. You can sign up for the waitlist here, but it does not guarantee a seat on a bus.

Update 7:01 a.m.: All three buses are filled. According to UPUA, it took less than a minute.

Update 10:20 p.mThe busses will depart at 7 a.m. in front of the HUB on Pollock Road.

Original Story

The University Park Undergraduate Association will fund three buses to Indianapolis next weekend for students to travel to the Big Ten Championship Game as part of its Blue & White Brigade program with the support of the Blue and White Society. UPUA’s other Blue & White Brigade this season traveled to Michigan in September. There will be 55 seats on each bus.

The game is slated to kick off at 8 p.m. and will be featured on ESPN’s College GameDay. Students are asked to return to the bus immediately following the game to begin the drive back to State College. The Alumni Association will provide shakers to traveling students to help give Lucas Oil Stadium a Beaver Stadium vibe.

Spots on the bus will be free for students and can be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Signups for the busses will begin at 7 a.m. tomorrow morning until 5 p.m. on Thursday hereStudent tickets for the game go on sale at 7 a.m. Monday outside the Bryce Jordan Center.

UPUA Director of Communications Logan Echard elaborated on this weekend’s Blue and White Brigade. “Following the win over Michigan State on Saturday we have received numerous requests for a Blue &White Brigade to the Big Ten Championship game against Wisconsin on December 3,” Echard said. “We are grateful that the Blue & White Society is partnering with us to provide transportation to the Big Ten Championship game and provide a way for students to support the Penn State Football team.”
