In December of 2011, after the Auburn Tigers throttled South Carolina to win the SEC Championship, I began to scramble to make my travel arrangements to see the Auburn Tigers play in the BCS Championship Game. I remember the excitement and relief I felt when I realized how much money I could save by flying into Las Vegas instead of the ridiculously over-bought and hyper-expensive Phoenix airport. But then the question of actual transportation to the game itself became the issue. Thus, the BCSBus was born. The first trip to Glendale in 2011 was an overwhelming success, with over 200 passionate Auburn fans making the journey with me.
As the magical 2013 season began to develop-- road victory after road victory, miracle play after miracle play, EYE-POPPING RUSHING YARD TOTAL AFTER EYE-POPPING RUSHING YARDAGE TOTAL. I knew that we had the chancee to make another run to the champhionship... so I built this site. And prayed.
So here we stand, 24 hours after it has been announced that Auburn will once again return to the biggest stage in college football. I'm happy to report that this iteration of the BCSBus will be the biggest and best yet. In 24 hours, we have completely filled SEVEN BUSES. Our original goal was six buses and that was blown away in less than a day. We raised the bar to eight buses, a limit we will reach sometime tonight.
After we fill the eighth bus, we are going to shut down reservations and circle back with our charter bus partners to evaluate the feasibility of adding additional buses to the trip. Keep an eye on this blog and our Twitter page for any possible announcements regarding plans for additional buses.
To those of you who have already made reservations, we will be sending out additional information about the trip to the email associated with the primary reservation holder at the end of the week. Thank you once again and WAR EAGLE!
