Space is limited! The first 350 students to pay their $30 and make reservations can go on the trip. First Come, First Served. To reserve your spot, stop by the Athletics Ticket Office located on the first floor of the Athletics/Alumni Center and pay your $30.

Buses will take riders to downtown Memphis for the Liberty Bowl parade scheduled for 4 p.m., Dec. 28, and bring them back from downtown later that night. On Dec. 29, the buses will depart from hotels at noon to take riders to the pregame tailgate at the Coliseum adjacent to the Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium.

The reservations' office will work with students to identify the hotel and room. Students will need lodging for two nights, - Dec. 27 and 28. The cost will be between $80 -$112 a night per room, including tax, with breakfast provided. Up to 4 persons can share a room and share the cost, which could bring the per person cost down to $20 -25 per night, so get with your friends who are also on the bus and make your reservations together.
