Community members and students are being offered a chartered bus ride to watch Tarleton State open its 2013 football campaign in the Lone Star Football Festival at AT&T Stadium Saturday.

The Texans face Midwestern State at 4 p.m., and the Tarleton Office of Student Engagement in the Division of Student Life is selling seats on a charter bus to the game for $5.

Executive Director of Student Engagement Darrell Brown said the idea is to provide a fun, safe, alcohol-free mode of transportation to the game with like-minded fans. The bus will depart from the west side of Tarleton Memorial Stadium at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, arriving at Cowboys Stadium at approximately 2:30 p.m., in time for fans to visit the Tarleton Athletics Department's official tailgate party (See related article, this page).

Only 55 seats are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. For reservations or more information, contact the office of student engagement at (254) 968-9256.
