STILLWATER, Okla. (Nov. 20, 2015) – The Oklahoma State University Alumni Association and OSU Athletics are partnering with Sports & Entertainment Travel, LLC (SET) as the official travel provider for all OSU alumni and fans wishing to follow the Cowboys to their bowl destination this season.
“The OSU Alumni Association is proud to partner with OSU Athletics to provide Cowboy fans a first-class travel experience while supporting our team as they compete and represent Oklahoma State University,” said Chris Batchelder, OSU Alumni Association president. “This collaboration is yet another example of the Cowboy family working together to provide opportunities for alumni and fans to stay connected for life to OSU.”
The partnership comes as Cowboy football fans prepare for OSU’s tenth-straight bowl game after the team’s second 10-0 start in five seasons. SET will offer a variety of exciting bowl packages to any post-season game the Cowboys play in with options including an all-inclusive package with air, a land-only package and a game day package. Game tickets should be purchased through the OSU Athletics Ticket Office.
During the first year of the College Football Playoffs, SET served as the official travel partner for three of the four participating schools including Oregon and Ohio State, the two teams that advanced to play in the championship game.
“By partnering with the OSU Alumni Association to create an exceptional fan travel experience, we believe the entire university gets stronger,” said OSU Athletic Director Mike Holder. “We hope the OSU faithful will embrace this new opportunity to build on its reputation as a passionate fan base that turns out in large numbers to support their team.”
Following the bowl, the OSU Alumni Association and OSU Athletics will collaborate to provide travel packages for future OSU football, men’s and women’s basketball, and other Cowboy and Cowgirl athletic events. These opportunities will compliment the Alumni Association’s recently relaunched Traveling Cowboys program, which has already scheduled eight trips to exotic locations in 2016.
OSU alumni and fans interested in pre-registering for bowl travel packages may do so now at okstatefantravel.com or by calling 1-888-218-5367. Bowl packages will be available immediately following the Cowboys’ bowl destination announcement.
