Penn State students can purchase tickets Monday for away game versus Indiana

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Penn State students have an opportunity to attend the Nittany Lions’ Big Ten Conference opener at Indiana on Saturday, Oct. 5. Students who want to attend the noon clash can purchase a ticket at Gate B (northeast corner) of the Bryce Jordan Center beginning at 7 a.m. Monday, Sept. 30.

A limited number of student tickets will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis for the contest at Indiana’s Memorial Stadium. Each student will be permitted to purchase a $50 ticket and must present a valid Penn State ID+ Card to secure a ticket. All sales of all tickets will be done on a cash only basis. Credit cards and checks will not be accepted.

Students wanting to purchase tickets so that they may sit together at the Indiana game will need to make their ticket purchase together at Gate B of the BJC on Monday morning. Students may arrive at the Jordan Center at 6 a.m. Monday for the sale.

If student tickets remain after 8 a.m. Monday, the sale will move from Gate B to the Athletic Ticket Office inside the BJC. Student tickets will not be available after 4 p.m. on Monday.

Penn State students will have an opportunity to purchase tickets for every away game the Monday prior to each contest this season, with the exception of the Wisconsin game, when tickets will go on sale Nov. 18. The next student sale will be at 7 a.m. Oct. 21 for the clash at Ohio State. Public tickets for the Indiana game are available by calling 800-NITTANY, weekdays from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

Coach Bill O’Brien’s Nittany Lions (3-1) are idle this week. The Hoosiers also are idle this Saturday.

Penn State and Indiana will be meeting for the 17th time and have played every season since 2007. The teams previously met in the Big Ten opener in 1999 and 2011. The Nittany Lions and Hoosiers have been division rivals since 2011 and will be in the Big Ten’s Eastern Division starting next year and continue to play annually.

The Nittany Lions have a 16-0 on-field mark vs. Indiana, including a 45-22 win last year in Beaver Stadium. The last three games in Bloomington have been decided by six points or less: 22-18 (2004), 36-31 (2007) and 16-10 (2011).

Should demand dictate it, student tickets for the Indiana game will be sold through a wristband lottery. If the number of students in line by 7 a.m. exceeds the number of student tickets allocated for the Indiana game, a wristband lottery will be held. Students not in line by the time of the sale, 7 a.m., will not be included in the wristband lottery, should one be held.

Penn State single game tickets, as well as club seating in Beaver Stadium, are available by visiting or calling 800-NITTANY weekdays from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
