Special Student Ticket Offer for Saturday’s Home Opener

After this weekend’s thrilling 26-24 victory over Central Florida in Dublin, Penn State students can attend Saturday’s home opener at a special price.

With a valid student ID card, any Penn State student — including branch and World Campus enrollees — can purchase up to two tickets for $40 each. Penn State offered a similar deal last season for certain games, which provided opportunities for students without season tickets to go to games.

Penn State (1-0) hosts Akron (1-0) this Saturday in head coach James Franklin’s home debut. The game doubles as Community Heroes Day, and Penn State’s undefeated, Rose Bowl winning 1994 team will be honored at the half.

These special tickets will not be located in the student section. Instead, they’ll be dispersed throughout the stadium. Those interested can purchase them this week at the Bryce Jordan Center ticket office between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. or on game day at the Beaver Stadium ticket office from 8 a.m. Saturday until kickoff.

The Nittany Lions have seen an increase in ticket sales in advance of the 2014 season. Almost 6,000 new season tickets and more than 50,000 single game tickets have been purchased for the home slate of games, along with the sold out 21,000-seat student section.
