Tickets for the 2014 Football Season are going on sale! There are a limited number of tickets available based on each graduate school. All graduate students are able to purchase up to 2 tickets! Below is the schedule of the on sale dates & times, followed by information on HOW to purchase.

  • Medical School – Tuesday, May 6th starting at 10 am – 9 pm (or until med school tickets are sold out)
  • Dental School – Wednesday, May 7th starting at 10 am – 9 pm (or until dental school tickets are sold out)

Ordering Guidelines:

Student Season Ticket Option: Each student will be given the opportunity to order 2 Full Season Packages (6 games). The Student Season Package will be $72 for 1 ticket or $144 for 2 tickets.

Student basketball tickets will go on sale separately in the Fall. However, those students who purchase football tickets will have the first opportunity to purchase basketball season tickets. It is highly likely if you do NOT purchase football season tickets, you will not receive basketball tickets. By being a season ticket holder, you can also potentially have the right to purchase post-season tickets first!


  • All tickets are GA so it does not matter what tickets you select at this time. Grad student tickets will be assigned in the order they are purchased. Grad students who elect to join the SCAF will be assigned a seat prior to non-SCAF students.
  • You will receive a confirmation email from the Ticket Office after your purchase.

    * Remember to print the confirmation page at the end of your order to keep for your records

    * Methods of payment accepted: Visa, MasterCard


    Grad students may elect to purchase an undergraduate ticket. The benefit to purchasing one undergraduate ticket is to participate in the first-come; first served seating option. However, if you elect to purchase an undergraduate ticket for better seating you will only be able to purchase one ticket and you will have to abide by all the undergrad policies found here:


    Students who chose not to enroll for Fall 2014 are eligible for a refund. No refunds will be given to enrolled students.


    Do I need to show my Student ID at the football games?

    No, graduate students who purchase tickets through the graduate school lottery are exempt from showing their student ID at home football games.

    Where will my tickets be located?

    Graduate students will receive an assigned seat in sections 217-220, based on the timing of your purchase. You will be seated with other members of your graduate school. We do not accept any other additional requests to sit with another student. Students who want to sit together need to purchase together.

    How do I redeem my ticket?

    A detailed email will be sent to those who purchase with instructions on how to print your tickets off at home. This will be sent out approximately a week before the first home football game. If you do not have access to a printer, you can come to the Ticket Office at the football stadium with your student ID.
