Your 2023 Rose Bowl Ticketing Guide

For the first time since Penn State football’s 2016 campaign, the Nittany Lions are smelling roses.

As announced Sunday, the Penn State Nittany Lions will take on the Utah Utes in this season’s Rose Bowl. The Nittany Lions haven’t played in the Rose Bowl since their 2017 loss to USC, whereas Utah played in last year’s game and fell 48-45 to the Buckeyes.

Similar to any postseason game, ticket sales can be complicated. Here is how you can get your hands on coveted Rose Bowl tickets:

Eligible football season ticket holders and Nittany Lion Club (NLC) members can make online pre-sale ticket requests until December 5 at 11:59 p.m. These requests will be honored based on NLC point totals, as Penn State recognizes that all requests may not be filled.

Student NLC members will receive the same offer at a maximum of two tickets each, available from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, December 5.

At 7 a.m. on Tuesday, December 6, ticket sales will be opened to Penn State students who are not NLC members, with the two-ticket maximum also applied. Pending ticket availability, the sale will last until 5 p.m. Tuesday evening.

All student tickets will be sold in a mobile format. Each student will receive their reserved seating location once the sale ends, as they’re unable to select specific seats. Orders placed with two tickets will be assigned seats next to each other.

Starting at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, December 7, pre-sale requests are made available to Penn State Alumni Association members. This availability will run until 11:59 p.m. that night unless the number of allotted tickets has been purchased prior to sale closure. The Alumni Association will send out the link to purchase these tickets before the sale starts.

All remaining tickets will finally be open for public sale starting at 10 a.m. on Thursday, December 8. For more information on Rose Bowl tickets, check out Penn State Athletics’ full release.

The 2023 Rose Bowl Game will take place on January 2 in Pasadena, California. The matchup between the Nittany Lions and Utes will kick off at 5 p.m. on ESPN.
