MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - The Blue Raider Athletic Association has set its deadline for the bus trips to Western Kentucky for noon on Tuesday, Feb. 8 as announced by associate athletic director Alan Farley.

The women's game with the Hilltoppers is set for Wednesday, Feb. 9 at 7:30 p.m. The BRAA bus to the game will leave and return that same day and will cost $45 per person. Tickets to the game must be purchased separately.

The Blue Raider men will play Western Kentucky on Thursday, Feb. 10 at 7 p.m. The BRAA bus to the game will leave and return that same day and will cost $45 per person. Tickets to the game must be purchased separately.

For those who would like to attend both games and ride the bus the cost of the trip would be $80. The cost of a ticket for both buses is $10 less than if you purchased a seat on each at $45 a person.

Tickets to the Middle Tennessee vs. Western Kentucky basketball games is $12 a ticket for both the men and women. For tickets to the these games contact 1-888-YES-MTSU or visit the Blue Raider ticket office located at Gate 1A of Floyd Stadium on the campus of Middle Tennessee State University.

"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."

Contact the BRAA office at (615) 898-5953 or (615) 898-2210 to reserve your seat for the bus trip to Western Kentucky.

The BRAA will also be sponsoring a bus trip to the Sun Belt Basketball Championships in Hot Springs, Ark. Check goblueraiders.com for further information on the Hot Springs bus trip.
