Physical tickets are available for pick-up from the Program Office this week and on Saturday from 9AM-12PM and at the tailgate 12-2:30PM.

  • Class of 2017 Saturday Students: Electives will continue as scheduled (no changes). Lunch will be served at the International House from 12 – 1 p.m.

  • Non-Saturday Students coming for the tailgate/game: We’re happy to have you on campus this weekend for our Big Game.  Please note that your campus parking permit will not work on Football game days and you should plan to take public transportation or carpool and plan to pay for parking.

Thanks, and we look forward to seeing many of you on Saturday!
