Falcons take flight to Michigan State

The air is getting cooler, the leaves are beginning to change colors and every business is coming out with pumpkin spice flavored products. It’s that time of the year again. Football is right around the corner. For the Falcons, the season starts this Saturday, Sept. 2, when they take on the Michigan State Spartans in East Lansing, Michigan.

The University is looking for fan support this weekend for the opening game against a Big Ten school. One issue standing in the way of support is the two-hour drive to Spartan Stadium. But the University has come up with a solution for students.

The University is offering a trip to the big game on the Falcon Fan Bus. The University is providing a bus to transport students to the game and back to Bowling Green after. This will save money for students who were planning to arrange their own transportation to the game.

“Being President of Falcon Fanatics for the first time this year has me extra excited for the first football game this season,” Alexis Nader, president of Falcon Fanatics said. “We have been promoting this game since the beginning of the summer and even more now, especially since class is back in session.”

This is a new opportunity for all students of the University to show school spirit, meet new people, and support the football team. Spots on the bus are offered on a first come, first serve basis.

Tickets to the game are sold online and over the phone at 877.BGSU.TICKETS. Tickets are $25 for all students, and this includes the option to ride on the spirit bus. There are only 200 available spots on the bus, and they are going fast, so students are urged to get tickets soon.

Nader is thankful that the University Activities Organization is providing the fan bus, and she is excited for students to get the opportunity to cheer on the Falcons at a Big Ten school.

“This is going to be something that we can look back on after graduation and remember forever,” Sophomore Brennan Reynolds said. “Experiences like this are rare so you better make the most of them. This is a fantastic opportunity to show school spirit and support the University.”

“I am very excited for the game this Saturday. The bus is going to bring a lot of fans, and I’m hoping the Falcons will come away with the victory,” freshman Grant Baldwin said.
