What are the odds that a Gopher score of 0 can get a few tickets allocated? We don't usually sell out our visitor allowance, right?

I don’t think we‘ll sell it out. Wisconsin is generally the only game where gopher score matters in scoring a ticket.

Flights to Pittsburgh appear expensive. Philly is cheaper and DC, Baltimore are options as well.

Just buy tickets through the U. It’s fun. I’d go but I’ll be in New Orleans that weekend. Possibly Baton Rouge
Where do you do this? I’m assuming just call the ticket office? Tried looking around on the gopher app and didn’t have success finding what I needed.

Flying in to Newark and staying with my NJ friends and driving down on Friday night. Have a airbnb in Bellefont.

If an uber doesn't take us were f'd cuz we're gonna be sloppy lol

Oh, ordered tickets through the ticket office (fingers crossed, Gopher score at 5000ish), and rocking mostly gold with some maroon

Southwest, Spirit, and Sun Country (seasonal though) all fly direct from MSP to BWI. Might be a good option for folks to consider. I-83 up to York and Harrisburg, then make your way over to State College from there?

Gotta think they (Uber drivers) come in for gameday weekens by the droves, for exactly what you're saying.

Town/area probably adds 120k people on a gameday.

Just bought five tickets today through the Gophers. First time buying single game tickets through them. The way I understand it is I have tickets, but they will be prioritized by Gopher Score and the higher the score the better the ticket.

Provided the allotment doesn’t sell out is my understanding

I don’t think selling out matters once you have ordered away game tickets. Gopher score matters for how “good” your seats are once you get your tix, but I don’t think you can get bumped out of the tickets you purchased as much as four months prior to the game.

Got everything in place as far as travel...on the list for tickets from the U. I'm guessing it will end up getting as many tickets as needed to fill those requests. Remember everyone, we wear GOLD!

That’s close to where I live! Cranberry is still about 2.5 hours from Beaver Stadium. Try to look for a hotel in ALTOONA, PA, that’s 45 mins from the stadium. That’s where we be.

I called today and confirmed. As long as you buy before September 23rd your tickets are guaranteed. White out, here we come!

Won’t be as “white”….there will be sections of yellow throughout 😆 We should make and bring yellow handheld pom-poms for all Minnesota fans. When they throw their white pom poms, we throw our yellow pom-poms

I was thinking the exact same thing. someone with far more organizational skills than me should get going on gold Pom poms. Even coordinate through the U if possible.
