UB's Football Program has come leaps and bounds over the past couple of years. With multiple players getting drafted to the NFL, people want to watch this team.

It's pretty cool to be able to pick out a star when they're in college and say, "that kid is going to go far." It's even cooler when that kid came from a college in your city.

We've seen some big-name players at UB Stadium before they were big names.  People like Khalil Mack from the Chicago Bears and James Starks who went on to become a star with the Green Bay Packers can both say they came from the UB Football program.

It's been great to watch this program grow. But this year, we're not able to. Just like the pros, we are not allowed to be in attendance at games like that here in New York State.

The UB athletic program had a setback about a month ago with COVID-19 when they discovered that 25 of their student-athletes and staff had tested positive for the virus.  Of those 25, 19 were from the football team.

But the Transit Drive-In wants to make sure you're still able to see your hometown team with others who want to support them. According to WIVB, they will be holding watch parties for the games against Northern Illinois next Wednesday, and for the Miami of Ohio game on November 10.

Like many of the other drive-in shows that you've seen throughout the summer, they will charge by the carload. $25 will cover your carload and they're even going to allow some tailgating 2 hours before the game.
