UPDATE: This story has been updated with new information from University Communications. 

After the Central Michigan University Chippewas' worst season in 2018, the team is now heading to its first conference title game in a decade. The Chippewas will make an appearance in the MAC championship game, facing Miami, Ohio at noon Saturday at Ford Field in Detroit.

Game tickets for $10 are currently available on Ticket Central, but now students can take advantage of a free bus ride to Ford Field for the game.

As part of the Office of Student Activities and Involvement "SAI On the Road" program, the first 100 students to go the Ticket Central office on Dec. 3 between 5-6 p.m. will receive a free bus ticket to the game.

In order to be eligible for the bus ticket, students must bring their game ticket with them to Ticket Central. There will be a limit of one bus ticket for each student, and tickets will be distributed first-come, first-served.

Buses will leave from Finch Fieldhouse at 8 a.m. on Dec. 7, and return immediately after the game. 

"I think it's important for students who want to go to have the opportunity to go and support their team, the university and have a good time," President Bob Davies said. "When we think about the experiences at a university, it's events like this that define (students') memories and thoughts. To have that opportunity in Detroit is absolutely outstanding."
