September 6 is looking like one of the greatest days in 2014 preseason college football. I want to make sure we can pack the stadium with Spartans when MSU returns to the West Coast.
Information on the big weekend from the MSU Alumni Club of Oregon & SW Washington (http://www.msuoregon.com):
We know game tickets are hard to come by, but if you’ve managed to secure yours, we have the best transportation package available. Travel there and back with other Spartans while avoiding the hassle of traffic and parking.
