Re: 2008-09 BCS Orange Bowl: #12 UC vs. #19 Virginia Tech
The cheapest way to get down there is to use your own car (or someone else's car who's going) and split the gas amongst everyone who is going. The second cheapest way to get down there is to rent a car and split the rental cost and all fuel costs amongst everyone who is going.
We have a large group going down and we're renting two vehicles, a full-size SUV and a full-size car. The total transportation costs (rental + fuel) for the people from Cincy in our group is only $135 each, and we'll also have those cars with us the entire time down in Florida so we can obviously travel wherever while down south. The only way we can beat that price is to have people take their own vehicles, but it's worth it to us to chip in a bit more money and save the wear and tear on our own vehicles.
If those two options aren't options for you guys (and I'm assuming you can't tag along with UC's student deal), then the cheapest is either Amtrak, Greyhound, or a cheap airline ticket. Of course, then you'll have to flag down cabs or find some other form of public transportation to go from train/bus station or airport to the stadium, and that'll run a bit more money.
