PISCATAWAY, N.J. (August 28, 2014) – Rutgers Athletics announced today that Rutgers’ first football game in the Big Ten versus Penn State on September 13 is sold out.
“We are thrilled to announce our first preseason sellout of High Point Solutions Stadium for the Penn State game,” said Rutgers Director of Athletics Julie Hermann. “Our Rutgers supporters stepped up to paint our stadium scarlet and that’s a first key to our Big Ten success.”
Season tickets for the 2014 season are also sold out as a record 30,927 purchased season tickets for Rutgers’ first Big Ten season.
Small quantities of single-game tickets are still available for fans who want to attend the Michigan and Wisconsin games along with the remaining home games, including the home opener against Howard. Tickets are available by calling 1-866-445-GORU or visiting Scarletknights.com.
The highly anticipated game has been one of the hottest tickets in school history. It is the earliest a game has sold out prior to a season since High Point Solutions Stadium was expanded to its current capacity of 52,454 in 2009.
Student tickets will be distributed on a single-game basis through the Scarlet Lottery for all 2014 home football games. The Scarlet Lottery will take place each week on the Monday and Tuesday before the game.
Kickoff for Rutgers’ inaugural Big Ten game against the Nittany Lions is in primetime at 8 p.m. on Big Ten Network.
