Student TaxSlayer Bowl Tickets Go On Sale Saturday Morning

If you’ve been under a rock since Sunday, good news: Penn State football is headed to Jacksonville for a TaxSlayer Bowl showdown with the Georgia Bulldogs on January 2. Penn State has an allotment of student tickets, and they go on sale this Saturday at 8 a.m.

Nittany Lion Club members could buy TaxSlayer Bowl tickets and bowl packages since this past Sunday, and that sale will continue until 5 p.m. on Tuesday. Next up are student members of the Nittany Lion Club, who can buy their student section tickets at 7 a.m. on Friday through the Student Account Manager. Non-NLC students’ tickets go on sale Saturday morning at 8 a.m., in-person at the Bryce Jordan Center office.

Penn State says more details will come later in the week, but its Bowl Central page says TaxSlayer Bowl tickets are $85 to $125.

As if a bowl game in Florida isn’t incentive enough, here are more positives bound to come from the experience: A 7-5 Penn State team that matches up well with the 9-3 Bulldogs should be a fun game (and it’s their second meeting ever — the first was a National Championship). Per Accuweather, State College’s high on January 2 is 26 degrees and Jacksonville’s is 71. And finally, though Jacksonville is rather far inland, EverBank Field is directly on a lake and has a great skyline behind it.

So get your tickets and meet us in Jacksonville as Penn State tries to go 2-0 in bowls in the James Franklin era.
