Update, 12/5 1:11 p.m.: Penn State Athletics announced the prices for student tickets, a whopping $150 for those who aren’t a member of the Student Nittany Lion Club. Unlike the Big Ten Championship, students will be able to pay with cash, a credit card, or LionCash. The sale starts at 8 a.m. and ends at 11 a.m. or when all of the allotment of tickets have been purchased. Unlike the Big Ten Championship game ticket sale, Penn State asserts this time that camping out is prohibited and students may not begin lining up until 6 a.m.
Students who are a member of the Student Nittany Lion Club can purchase tickets online here and will then have to pick them up from the BJC ticket office. Those who want to sit together at the game must come pick up their tickets together.
With the Rose Bowl venue just 25 minutes from USC’s campus, Penn State vs. USC might feel like a Trojan home game. However, as the Nittany faithful proved this weekend, Penn State fans are willing to go the distance to support their Lions. While Pasadena is much farther away than Indianapolis, we don’t doubt many fans will make the cross-country trek to see Penn State play the Southern California Trojans in “The Grandaddy of Them All” on January 2.
Penn State’s ticket allotment will go on sale incrementally throughout this week. Before Penn State even knew which bowl it would play in, the ticket sales schedule was announced on GoPSUsports.com. Tickets reserved for students will be available online to Student Nittany Lion Club members at 7:00 a.m. on Friday, December 9. All students will be able to purchase tickets in person at the Bryce Jordan Center on Saturday, December 10 at 8 a.m.
Nittany Lion Club Members have had access to an online pre-sale since the Lions’ Rose Bowl was announced on Sunday afternoon. Alumni Association Members’ online pre-sale will begin on Tuesday, December 6 at 9 a.m. The general public will be able to purchase tickets as of Wednesday, December 7.
Because the bowl had yet to be announced when the information was released, prices have not yet been made public. This post will be updated once more information is available.
