The Playoffs are back in the 'Catdome and you can tell from the clip above the 'Cats are ready. wanted to give you all the breakdown on some easy links to get you all you need on what's happening with the playoffs, brackets, how to purchase tickets, etc.
With regards to tickets. The playoff game is falling at the beginning of Thanksgiving break for the students so there should be plenty of general admission tickets available. The weather looks like a coin flip right now so you better hustle and contact Linfield (see link below) about getting a covered seat.
For those that haven't been back to the 'Catdome in sometime or those 'Lute fans that are reading the blog (I know you are) I have a link below that lays out where the best spot is to tailgate. Linfield fans have a great reputation for being welcoming to tailgaters no matter your allegiance. So don't worry about mixing in among the 'Cat faithful. I also give you some of my favorite places around Mac and if you're getting in on Friday and are looking for things to kill some time. Go 'Cats!
