    Bowl Game package question

    Does the University or Gridiron Club usually put together a travel package for when we go to bowl games? If so, does anyone know how much they usually run?

    Lot of usually's in that question. Iowa State doesn't usually go to a bowl game.

    Yes, the Alumni Association and others such as the Cyclone Club, etc. will have packages. Cost will depend on what all you include in the package. Also, local travel agencies will have packages that can include everything such as motel, meals, transportation, air travel, tickets, etc.

    Re: Bowl Game package question

    I went with the alumni association to the Insight bowl and the trip was worth the price. It was a great time and everything was taken care of. Private flight, bus from airport to resort, resort full of Cyclone fans, bus to and from pep rally, police escort to game, snacks and drinks on bus back from game plus many other things. Had an amazing time!
