MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - The Blue Raider Athletic Association has announced an upcoming bus trip offer for fans and supporters of the Middle Tennessee athletic department for the women's basketball game Sunday against Georgia in Auburn, Ala.

"This is a great way for our fans to enjoy an outstanding women's basketball game Sunday in the NCAA Tournament," Associate Athletic Director Alan Farley said. "With the rise in gas prices, it is a cost-effective way to get to the game and cheer on the Blue Raiders. It also prevents fans from having to reserve a hotel room, as it is just a one-day trip."

The trip to Auburn will cost only $62 per person and will depart from the Greenland Drive parking lot at 10 a.m. Sunday. Middle Tennessee and Georgia are set to square off at 6:30 p.m. later that day and the bus will return to Murfreesboro immediately following the conclusion of the game.

Should the Blue Raiders advance to Tuesday's Second Round, more details will be released at a later date.

The $62 only includes the bus ride to and from the game. Tickets must be purchased separately and can be arranged through the Middle Tennessee ticket office at 1-888-YES-MTSU.

Information about the Blue Raider Athletic Association or any questions regarding the bus trip should be directed to Linda Watson with the BRAA office at (615) 898-2210.
