STATE COLLEGE – The Penn State student section was filled with more than 21,000 tickets sold this week, highlighted by the sold-out allotments of the junior (17 minutes), sophomore (15) and freshmen (14) classes. The Penn State student section has consistently sold out for four decades, showing the passion and dedication of Penn State students year-in and year-out.
“Our students always impress me with their excitement when it comes to the student ticket sale,” coach James Franklin said. “Our student section continues to show they are the best in the country and makes Beaver Stadium the toughest place to play. We can’t wait to be back in front of our amazing students in August.”
This year’s home schedule features a trio of non-conference games, including the 100th all-time meeting with Pittsburgh on Sept. 14. The Nittany Lions open the season against Idaho (Aug. 31) and face Buffalo (Sept. 7). In Big Ten play, Penn State welcomes Purdue (Oct. 5 – Homecoming), Michigan (Oct. 19 – White Out), Indiana (Nov. 16) and Rutgers (Nov. 30) to Happy Valley.
