Details are still being finalized, but signups are currently being taken for the FREE transportation to Tampa Bay in the FSU Athletics Ticket Office.  The free bus tranpsortation is compliments of the FSU President's Office.

To qualify for the free bus ride, fans must purchase an all-session game ticket thru the FSU Athletics Ticket Office and the Bulldogs' allotment.  The $195 ticket will allow for entrance into both national semifinal games and the national championship contest in FSU's designated seating locations inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum.
Additionally, in order to take the bus, fans must stay at the hotel provided by FSU Athletics.  All lodging and ticket costs are the responsibility of the person traveling.

The first 60 FSU students to signup for the trip will receive $50 off their game ticket courtesy of the Blueline Club.
