Student Away Football Ticket Sales Move Online

The days of camping out to secure tickets to Penn State’s biggest games away from Beaver Stadium are over.

Penn State Athletics is changing the way it sells tickets to students for away football games, moving away from in-person sales at the Bryce Jordan Center and instead allowing students to purchase their tickets online through the Student Account Manager.

Tickets still must be picked up in person at the Bryce Jordan Center ticket office.

“We have received feedback from students indicating in-person sales were not the most convenient or efficient sale method,” Penn State Athletics spokesperson Jeff Nelson said. “Moving the sales to online also eliminates having to consider a number of variables, including students standing in cold or inclement weather.”

Students hoping to end up with tickets to the Big Ten Championship game, if the Nittany Lions make it, or Penn State’s bowl game should expect a similar online process, but straight through Ticketmaster instead of the Student Account Manager.

For the remaining three away games of the regular season, student tickets will go on sale at 7 a.m. on the Monday before the game, with an exception for the Maryland game, which will be sold two Mondays before the game because of Thanksgiving break. The next away matchup is October 28 against Ohio State.

Members of the Student Nittany Lion Club can purchase tickets 10 days in advance of an away game.

Tickets can be picked up by students starting at 10 a.m. on the Tuesday after the sale. Students have until 4:30 p.m. on the Thursday after the sale to pick up tickets.

Away Game Student Ticket Sale Dates/Prices:
October 28: Ohio State | Sale Date: October 23 | Price: $140
November 4: Michigan State | Sale Date: October 30 | Price: $80
November 25: Maryland | Sale Date: November 13 | Price: $70
