Attention UT students: Here’s your chance to go to Detroit for the 2017 Mid-American Conference Football Championship with The University of Toledo Alumni Association.

Registration for the bus trip will open Monday, Nov. 27, at noon.

The UT Alumni Association, in conjunction with UT’s Department of Intercollegiate Athletics and the Division of Student Affairs, wants students to be in Detroit Saturday, Dec. 2, as the Toledo Rockets take on the Akron Zips.

Support the Rockets in the biggest game of the year for $25. This price includes a game ticket, round-trip transportation, boxed breakfast, soft drinks/bottled water and other trip expenses.

This UT Alumni Association sponsored event is for UT students only.

Reservations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. A total of 416 seats are available.

Reservations will be accepted starting at noon Monday, Nov. 27.

Student reservations only can be made online here. Emails and phone calls will not be accepted as registration.

After making a reservation, students will receive an email confirmation. If you did not receive an email confirmation, your reservation was not submitted properly. If this occurs, contact Marcus L. Sneed, associate director of alumni relations, at marcus.sneed@utoledo.edu.

Each student must make his or her own reservation online. Students who wish to sit with a group of friends on the trip must enter their names on the registration form, otherwise there is no guarantee the group will be seated on the same bus.

The UT chartered buses will depart at 9:30 a.m. from Rocket Hall Saturday, Dec. 2, and return at approximately 6 p.m. Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. in the lobby on the west end of Rocket Hall. Students are encouraged to be dropped off at Rocket Hall for the bus trip in lot 25.

All trip participants will be required to show a valid Rocket ID upon registration and when loading on the bus. In addition, all students must provide a cell phone number that will be used during the trip.

For students who plan to attend, a liability waiver and a travel expectation form must be completed and signed at the time of registration — no exceptions.

And don’t forget to wear Rocket gear and show your Rocket pride at Ford Field!
