Michigan State Spartans at Oregon Ducks

September 6 is looking like one of the greatest days in 2014 pre-conference game college football. I want to make sure we can pack the stadium with Spartans when MSU returns to the West Coast.

Ticket information:

I know this is one of the most important parts of the weekend – actually figuring out how to attend the game – so here is everything we know so far. Feel free to leave a comment or email natalie@sfbayspartans.org if you find out any other updated information.

You can follow Spartan Central or more information or try Oregon’s ticket office. According to several people in our group who have tried to go through MSU Athletics, the MSU ticket allotment went to Spartan Fund donors first, so I don’t think any more tickets are available through MSU. You can always try StubHub. Best of luck – please let me know if you end up finding tickets!

Information on the big weekend from the MSU Alumni Club of Oregon & SW Washington:
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.
