Make plans now to join your University of Toledo Alumni Association for a bus trip to the MAC Championship football game as we cheer on our UT Rockets when they battle the University of Akron on Saturday, Dec. 2. 

Please call 419.530.2586 to check on availability of the bus trip, Pregame Party, and game tickets.

Seven buses have been reserved to transport alumni and friends to the game and a fantastic Pregame Party in the Comerica Gridiron Club at Ford Field. Your transportation includes the cost of parking, driver tip, soft drinks and bottled water. 


The menu for the Pregame Party is:

• Zingerman's Bake House breakfast pastries, including lemon clouds, scones and cinnamon rolls

• Bagels with cream cheese

• Fresh seasonal fruits

• Roasted vegetable egg frittata with mushrooms, onions, cauliflower, spinach, seasonal squash and goat cheese with fresh herbs

• French toast casserole with Bananas Foster filling, cream cheese and pecan pieces served with warm maple syrup on the side

• Griddled breakfast meats, including Detroit Sausage Co. breakfast links

• Coffee, hot tea and fresh orange juice

• A cash bar will be available

Our buses will depart from Rocket Hall (corner of Dorr and Secor) at 7:30 a.m. with the Pregame Party scheduled from 9:30 - 11:30 a.m., prior to the kickoff at noon. We anticipate returning to campus at approximately 6 p.m. Because the Alumni Association is contractually bound for bus rental, facility rental and catering charges, we will unfortunately be unable to provide refunds for any cancellations. No exceptions.
