Student Pinstripe Bowl Tickets To Go On Sale Saturday Morning
Set your alarms, grab your coats, and have your parents send you money.
Penn State announced that this Saturday at 9 a.m., students will be able to purchase tickets for the upcoming Pinstripe Bowl for $55 each, using cash or a credit card, at the Bryce Jordan Center ticket office. Each student can purchase two tickets with a valid Penn State Student ID card, and the tickets will be in sections 202 and 203.
The sale will run either until the tickets sell out, or until noon Saturday, after which, any remaining seats will be sold at the Athletic Ticket Office the next week. Student Nittany Lion Club members will receive priority for ticket purchase and location. The seats will be what is normally right-center field in Yankee Stadium, but will overlook the endzone, in a similar spot to what is normally the away team’s section in Beaver Stadium.
The announcement comes two days after Penn State received a bid to the Pinstripe Bowl in New York City, where the team will play the Boston College Eagles on December 27th. The game is the Nittany Lions’ first since January 2012, when Penn State fell to Houston in the TicketCity Bowl. Sanctions have kept the team out of bowl games the past two seasons, despite records that would have made them eligible.
Penn State also announced that it sold out of the rest of its ticket allotment before the tickets were able to be offered to the public, selling out during the priority members’ sale, opened up only to Nittany Lion Club and Alumni Association members.
