$45 for those of us of a certain vintage. I bought two yesterday.

Bought one, $45 ticket, $25 pre-game, and $5 fee. Not bad as booked a room close enough to make the pre game, even if it's a noontime game.

Were they purchased thru the Army ticket office site?

^ No. Our site. Single game tickets - home and away - went on sale yesterday.

Steve - I didn't get the pre-game, as I still have nightmares thinking of last time we were there. Cold day, cold coffee, cold breakfast food. I hope our Alumni group - or whoever is doing it - finds a better way.

Anything out there regarding a TV deal for the upcoming season? Odd that nothing has been announced with the season a month away. Fellow indy New Mexico St recently signed a deal with FloSports to carry their games, wonder if something like that is on the table for UMass as well?

Maybe what we had signed for last season extends into this year?

Living here in Mooresville NC I am planning to go to the Charlotte game about a half hour or so away. Did find out that you need a parking permit to park anywhere on campus at all times. So I called the campus parking office only to find out that they have a private company that handles the parking permits. It appears to me so far that you have to buy the permits at a PARKMOBILE near campus. Sound like a pain in the but way to get a parking permit. I understand that their LIGHT RAIL goes near the campus. Maybe that will be the best/easiest way to get there.

So if anyone is planning to come to the game you should check on getting a parking permit. Just wish there would be a way to do it on line.

I don't believe so. Looked like Eleven Sports left us hanging back in January. Also no start times have been announced for any home games yet.

It’s amazing that only a month from the start of the season and times for home games still not announced....

Home game times get set a little more than a week ahead of time. Been that way since the move to FBS.

Start times for all games at McGuirk were announced on July 24 last year. Start time for BYU game at Gillette was announced in mid-August.

Last year was an anomaly due to having the streaming deal in place. When we have had actual TV, including ESPN (plus), the game times have been announced as late as a week before the games.
