The Mid-American Conference cross-division matchup will help benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure of Northwest Ohio. The team encourages everyone in attendance to wear pink in support of cancer research.

Groups that buy 15 or more tickets may purchase them for $5. Those purchasing the first 500 group tickets will receive free “Rockets for the Cure” commemorative T-shirts.

Tickets also will be sold for a live raffle throughout the game. Immediately following the contest, guest emcee Chrys Peterson will host a live auction for the UT players’ pink game jerseys.

Last season, Toledo raised a record $18,010 for Susan G. Komen for the Cure, surpassing the previous year’s total of $14,366.
