Rutgers Students Tickets On Sale Monday

Penn State students looking to cheer on the Nittany Lions as they travel to Rutgers this coming Saturday can purchase tickets at the Bryce Jordan Center early this week.

Beginning at 7 a.m. Monday morning, tickets will be sold at Gate B of the BJC on a first-come, first-served basis for $85 a ticket. A valid Penn State ID must be presented, and students may purchase tickets only in cash. Students looking to sit together must purchase tickets together. Students are allowed to arrive at the BJC an hour early to wait for the office to open.

If the tickets don’t sell out within the first hour, the sale will continue at the Athletic Ticket Office, also inside the Jordan Center. After 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, student tickets will no longer be purchasable.

In a similar fashion, students will be able to buy tickets for all away football games this season. Michigan tickets are $95, Indiana tickets are $50, and Illinois tickets are $49 (On Stubhub, tickets for Indiana are $38, and Illinois tickets are only $17, so factor that into your decision.)

Saturday’s upcoming matchup — Penn State’s Big Ten opener — pits the 2-0 Nittany Lions against a 2-0 Scarlet Knights squad. It will mark the first of an annual Big Ten East Division rivalry game between the two, and the first time the two teams have met since 1995.

Special $40 tickets were sold in advance of last week’s home opener against Akron, part of an effort to boost attendance numbers. Announced attendance for the game was 97,354.
