MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - The Blue Raider Athletic Association will be sponsoring bus trips to Bowling Green, Ky., for the men's and women's basketball games vs. Western Kentucky in February as announced by associate athletic director Alan Farley.

"I think we have put together a great option for our fans. By taking the bus they will save money as gas is now about $3 a gallon, mileage on their car, the hassle of parking in Bowling Green and will not have to fight traffic on I-65," Farley said. "I know fans in the past have enjoyed riding the bus to Blue Raider events and I think this is an affordable option for them to cheer on our teams against their biggest rival."
