Game time has not yet been set; however, it is anticipated that the busses will depart the UT campus approximately six hours before the scheduled kickoff. The pre-game event will begin 3 hours before kickoff.

The cost for game ticket, bus trip and pre-game event is $145 per person. The cost for the bus trip and pre-game event is $90 per person; pre-game event only is $45 per person.
