With an august 47-year history, the Great Lakes Invitational pits some of the country’s top college hockey teams against one another in fierce on-ice contests of puck-manipulating skill. The tournament kicks off with the MSU Spartans swapping togas for padding before gliding into battle against Michigan Tech, led by former Tech student and GLI winner Mel Pearson. After the first match, Michigan’s perennially powerful Wolverines face down the Boston College Eagles, currently clawing their way back to greatness after taking home the trophy in the 2010 NCAA Tournament. Friday’s games will commence with a consolation round, letting the previous day’s losing teams duke it out for third before the championship determines which team gets the first-place trophy and which team gets the second-place statue of a disapproving father.

Home of the NHL Red Wings, the 20,058-seat Joe Louis Arena proffers collegiate athletes with a professionally icy field for low-friction feats. Great Lakes Invitational T-shirts give fans a great way to broadcast attendance, showing off hockey fandom and presenting a plausible alibi for crimes committed by doppelgangers during the game.

Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon’s mobile app.
