Bowling Green, Ohio – Bowling Green State University's students will have the opportunity to purchase tickets when the Falcon football team opens the season at Ohio State Sept. 3. The game is scheduled for a noon kickoff.
In order to purchase the discounted $35 ticket, students must claim their home student season tickets for the football season (free to claim at BGSUFalcons.com/studenttickets
) and must join the Falcon Fanatics student spirit group for $10. At that time, students will be able to purchase one $35 ticket and will then have the opportunity to purchase one additional ticket for $75. The $35 student tickets are extremely limited, so students are encouraged to get theirs as soon as possible by calling 877-BGSU TICKET. As well, students can purchase a spot on the fan bus to the game for an additional $20. The deadline to order tickets for the Ohio State game is Aug. 17.
"We are so excited to be able to offer this amazing benefit to our members," Courtney Griffith, President of the Falcon Fanatics, said. "Having Falcon Fanatics in Columbus will be a fantastic way to kick off another year of Falcon Football!"
Along with the opportunity to purchase tickets for the Ohio State game, benefits of being a Falcon Fanatic include the official Falcon Fanatics 2016-17 t-shirt, exclusive meetings and unique experiences with BGSU's teams, raffle prizes and more.
As well, once a student purchases their Falcon Fanatic membership for 2016-17, they will have the option of purchasing a $5 raffle ticket for a one-of-a-kind experience at Ohio State. The winner and a BGSU student guest will travel with the football team to the game, stay at the team hotel and receive free tickets to the Sept. 3 contest.
"We have a tremendous opportunity in front of us when we open the season at Ohio State," BGSU football coach Mike Jinks
said. "But in order to take advantage of that opportunity, we need as much Orange and Brown in the stadium as possible. The student body makes college football unique and special. As a team, we ask for your support all year long as we work to defend our MAC Championship."
Bowling Green football is the defending Mid-American Conference champions and have advanced to the MAC Championship game three consecutive years. The Falcons went 10-4 a year ago, defeating two Big Ten schools and beating Northern Illinois 34-14 to win their 12th MAC Championship in program history.
