Traveling to Indy for Sweet Sixteen

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Friday night the Vols will meet up with second-seeded Michigan at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The game is on WVLT-CBS at 7:15 p.m. but if you'd rather see it live; here's how you can get there.

If you want to drive; it's about 350 miles to Indianapolis or about 5 hours. By using the AAA gas calculator it would cost around $100 round trip for a car. You can figure out the estimated price at the AAA link to the side of the story.

Want to rent a car instead of putting the miles on your own car? It looks like it's going to cost you anywhere between $36-$50 a day, not including taxes, fees and gas.

Taking a bus is another travel option especially if you don't want to bother with driving. MegaBus and Greyhound are the two major bus companies in the area and both charge pretty much the same amount; $40- $50 one way without any taxes or fees.

If you do take a bus there's no direct route to Indianapolis; you'll have to take a different bus in Cincinnati that will take you to Indianapolis.

Flying is another option but not as affordable as the others. From Knoxville's McGhee Tyson Airport to Indianapolis International Airport it's around $800 for a non-stop flight.

You can save a few bucks by flying out of Chattanooga's Metropolitan Airport for about $300, there is one stop. Also, remember non of these prices include taxes, fees, and luggage fees.
