If so, sign up for the bus trip and pre-game party sponsored by the UT Alumni Association.

A total of 23 buses have been reserved to transport students, alumni and UT community members to the game.

Pre-game parties will take place in the stadium’s City View Club Lounge and the Lake View Club Lounge.

Dan Saevig, UT associate vice president of alumni relations, said, “This is a popular event for the UT community and one of the largest gatherings the Alumni Association will ever host.”

The party menu will consist of hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, kielbasa, bratwurst, nachos with chili, baked beans, potato salad, coleslaw, desserts, coffee, tea, soft drinks and water. A cash bar also will be available.

Game time has not been set, but the buses will depart campus approximately six hours before the scheduled kickoff. The pre-game event will begin three hours before kickoff.

The cost for bus trip, game tickets and pre-game event is $145 per person.
