ATHENS, Ohio - Ohio Football is heading to Detroit for the MAC Championship Game, and the Bobcats want as many fans as possible to visit the Motor City to help them win the MAC title!
Ohio Athletics is offering a bus trip for fans. The bus trip is FREE for Ohio University students and $15 for non-students. The bus will leave the Convocation Center on the morning of Thursday November 30th at 10 a.m. and will make a stop in Columbus to pick up more fans before heading to Ford Field in Detroit. The bus will arrive in Detroit at approximately 5 p.m. The MAC Championship Game against Central Michigan kicks off at 7:30 p.m. The bus will depart Detroit shortly after the game, making a stop once again in Columbus before returning to Athens.
