Are you a KU student? Do you love KU basketball? If you answered yes to those questions, you’ll love this.
ESPN’s College GameDay is coming to Allen Fieldhouse on Saturday, Feb. 16. The program airs weekly on ESPN during college basketball season, and it’s recorded at a different game site each week. This will be the fifth time that Kansas has hosted College GameDay, and the school’s eighth appearance on the program.
Student Alumni Association members will have access to free, reserved seating for College GameDay!
If you’re a member of SAA, you can pick up two free tickets at the Adams Alumni Center next week. Drop by between 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday, Feb. 11- Wednesday, Feb. 13. You’ll also get two vouchers for concessions at Allen Fieldhouse. Your tickets must be picked up by 5 p.m. on Wednesday.
On game day, Feb. 16, you’ll need to be at Allen Fieldhouse at 7 a.m. and in your seat by 7:30 a.m. The reserved seats are in sections H and 7.
These tickets are only for College GameDay, not the actual basketball game that night. Allen Fieldhouse will be cleared around 11:30 a.m. after the program is filmed, and you’ll need a basketball game ticket to come back for the game.
What if you’re not a member of SAA?
You’re in luck! It’s not too late to join. Visit www.kualumni.org/join and click on the Current KU Students tab. You can pay $25 to join for the rest of this year, or pay $75 for a four-year membership.
SAA members have access to the vast KU alumni network through an online directory, as well as to programs and events throughout the school year. Members also get a 10% discount on KU merchandise at the KU Bookstore and other benefits. And, new members can also pick up free tickets for College GameDay. Your membership more than pays for itself!
Spread the word to other friends, create your best poster and let’s fill the Fieldhouse for College GameDay!
