Game tickets still available on broker Web sites

The Horned Frogs’ football game against Utah has completely sold out Amon G. Carter Stadium for the first time since 2006, when the Horned Frogs played Texas Tech.

Although the university box office has sold out of tickets, they are still available on ticket broker Web sites such as Texas Tickets and StubHub, ranging in price from $85 to $500 each as of Tuesday evening.

Craig Baima, Texas Tickets in Arlington spokesman, said that once the most recent football rating was released, the store began getting a lot of calls for tickets.

“We had a few the last couple days, but we are sold out right now,” Baima said.

Kelsie Johnson, student body president, wrote in a campuswide e-mail Tuesday that all students will be allowed in with their IDs and are advised to arrive early to get a good seat. No printed tickets will be issued to students to get into the game.

Students will also be allowed to spend the night in the Campus Commons on Friday in order to be ready for the university’s first ESPN College GameDay live broadcast beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday, Johnson wrote.

Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Don Mills said there will be no tents allowed for safety reasons and to be sure the ESPN video cameras have a good view of the fountains in the Commons area. Food and entertainment will be provided at the campout.

“We are going to show three movies beginning at 11 p.m., and the Union will be open all night with food,” Mills said.

Johnson said no alcohol will be permitted at the campout and that SGA will supply ingredients to make s’mores and hopes to hire a disc jockey.

Students are encouraged to make signs but any offensive material will be confiscated, Johnson wrote.

“Keep it clean, and most of all, supportive of our Horned Frog football,” Johnson wrote.

Mills said the university will have TCU Police, the Fort Worth Police Department and the United States Marshals Service working security Friday and Saturday.
