    For example, when Air Force plays Navy or Notre Dame away next year, how is it decided which cadets are eligible to attend that are going just to watch, assuming they are even allowed to do that in the first place? And if they are allowed to go, how is the trip arranged and paid for?

    I can't answer your question in full, but I do know that some cadets/midshipmen travel for at least the SA games. This past year I had went to the Navy@AirForce game and there was probably a couple hundred mids in attendance.

    Hope someone else can answer this for you.:smile:

    Our son has attended a few away games, and it is pretty much up to the cadet to buy their ticket, arrange (and pay for) travel and lodging, and get permission to go. Getting permission involves filing a Triple S form with his/her command early enough to get approval before the event. In our son's case, he went to away games at schools that some of his friends were at, and stayed with them at the destination school.

    Another sure-fire way is to join the cadet Drum & Bugle Corps. Apparently, it's not that difficult to join. But, from what I understand, you have to commit to a full-year.

    Varsity cheer also travels to away games.
