Penn Staters Bought Pitt Season Tickets And Pitt’s All-Time Season Ticket Record Broke

When it’s tough to fill seats, those seats can end up selling for pretty damn cheap. So cheap, in fact, that it was less expensive for Penn Staters to buy Pitt season tickets than individual ones to the Penn State-Pitt game September 10. So, naturally, Penn Staters bought Pitt season tickets — and broke an all-time football season ticket record for the Panthers in the process.

Pitt Athletic Director Scott Barnes sent a congratulatory tweet met with a mix of Nittany Lion pride and, you guessed it, Pitt fans spouting classless Sandusky jokes:

(Can we take a moment to discuss #NotDoneYet? This hashtag sounds like Pitt is saying “Hey, maybe we’re not great but we’re not done striving for mediocrity.”  Please use the comments section below to suggest a better hashtag for Pitt.)

Former Penn State players even contributed to Pitt’s newest accomplishment:

Along with Penn State fans, we’re sure alcohol sales and literally anything other than watching the Panthers play football also contributed to the record:

Pitt season tickets start at $147, while the cheapest ticket for the Penn State-Pitt game is $179 on StubHub. Numbers don’t lie.
