Alumni Association Sponsoring Barbecue, Travel Packages for Penn State Game

The Alumni Association is offering a travel package and pre-game barbecue for fans for the Sept. 20 football game between the Minutemen and the Penn State Nittany Lions at Beaver Stadium in State College, Pa.

Travel to the game with fellow fans through a travel package or meet up with UMass football fans at the pre-game barbecue.

Barbecue attendees will enjoy a pig roast, three side dishes, rolls, cookies and brownies, iced tea and two additional drink tickets good for soft drinks, beer or wine (cash bar after tickets are used). Since the barbecue begins three hours prior to kickoff, there will be plenty of time to feast and then head to campus to cheer on the Minutemen.
