TOWSON, Md. (WJZ) — While the Ravens are out of the postseason running, another Baltimore powerhouse team is on the way to the championship game. Several buses carrying the Towson Tigers left Wednesday morning.

Gigi Barnett has more on the team’s championship push.

The road to Towson University’s championship game began on a bus.

“I think it’s a great day to fly to Texas,” said one.

“Go Towson Tigers!” said a fan.

“Good luck, Towson! Leave no doubt on that field!” said another.

Fans rallied Wednesday. Sending the 12-2 Tigers off is a long time coming and took a great deal of work. The last time the team got this far was nearly 30 years ago.

“It has just been a ride with this wonderful team and to top it all off, they’re wonderful young men and they’re good students. I know how proud they are to be representing the state,” said University President Maravene Loeschke.

It was a win over Eastern Washington University last month that put the team in the FCS Division I championship game in Frisco, Texas. Now, with a national championship within sight, it means more than a title for the Tigers.

“It’s going to bring a lot more recruits, a lot more school spirit and it’s just going to make the school grow,” said Towson defensive end Ryan Delaire.

“The goal now after what we’ve done is to reinvest in our success,” said Towson Head Coach Rob Ambrose.

Making this one road trip to remember.

The Tigers will take on North Dakota State for the title on Saturday. More than 3,000 Towson fans are set to meet the team in Texas this weekend.
