Saturday, April 6, 2013—Pre-Game Event
4:44 p.m.

Hudson Grille, across the street from the CNN Center/Philips Arena

SU fans looking for a free alternative to the pre-game tailgate can gather at the Hudson Grille’s downtown location!

Saturday, April 6, 2013—Syracuse vs Michigan
8:49 p.m.
CNN Center/Philips Arena

If you’re not going to the game, watch it with the SUACOA at the Hudson Grille in Sandy Springs, 6317 Roswell Road, Sandy Springs, Georgia. Get there early to get a good seat.

(SU fans preferring to be closer to the action could head to the Hudson Grille’s downtown location, but it’s a smaller venue and won’t have an SUACOA section.  If you’d like to watch the game with the local alumni and fans, Sandy Springs will be a better option.)
