Battle in Seattle 2015: All You Need to Know

Hello Zags! With December right around the corner and finals quickly approaching (*sigh*), we wanted to give you something to look forward to after the semester is officially finished with all the info for Battle in Seattle!

This annual game held at Key Arena is on Saturday, December 19, the Saturday after finals are finished. This year’s opponent, Tennessee, has scheduled a really hard non-conference portion, and they’ll definitely be looking to come into a hostile environment and steal one from the Zags. Playing a Power 5 team in Seattle will be a nice change from the last couple years, and it’s shaping up to be a really good game! Tickets are available for students for $10 – you can purchase these at the Ticket Office in McCarthey while supplies last, so if you’re going, make sure to buy yours as soon as possible! You’ll need to show your student ID when you purchase your ticket, so make sure you have that with you.

As far as events in Seattle, we’ve got you covered for almost the whole weekend…

First off: lodging. We know that it’s getting toward crunch time, but we’re happy to say that we were able to secure a hotel deal for traveling Zags! The Hampton Inn and Suites in downtown Seattle – just a few blocks from Seattle Center and Key Arena. They’ve set aside King rooms for $109 per night and King Suites for $134 per night before taxes and fees, and the deal is good for both Friday and Saturday night. To get the deal, go to their website (here) and enter the code “GKC” in the Group Code box after setting your reservation details.

For those that are 21 or older, there are a few events for you as well. The Seattle Chapter of the Alumni Association has invited us to attend their pre-game event before the game on Saturday night from 6:00 – 7:30 pm. Tickets are $10 before December 16, and $15 after. You can find more info and RSVP by buying your ticket at this link. Additionally, we’re finalizing a Social Club event after the game for all you Social Club members that will be at the game – more info about this will be available in an email in the coming days!

That’s about it from our end – good luck with the rest of the semester, and we’ll see you in the Kennel in a few days for Arizona!
