Penn State Football: Pitt Game Ticket Most Expensive On Nittany Lions' Schedule

by on April 25, 2016 2:00 PM

No game will cost you more money to see on Penn State's schedule than a Week 2 trip to Pittsburgh and those prices may only go up from here as the game draws closer.

As of early April the cheapest ticket on StubHub to see the Panthers host Penn State was $154, and only a few days following Penn State's annual spring game that price jumped to $160. That figure is good enough to beat out even the Nittany Lions' marquee home games of the year against Ohio State. A ticket to see the Buckeyes come to town in early April was $150, and is now up to $158. Going on the road to see Penn State play Michigan? Those tickets are sitting around $141 just to get into the stadium.

The best steal right now though, a trip to New Jersey to see Penn State try and make it three straight wins over the Scarlet Knights. In early April those prices were as high as $119 and as of April 25 you could find a ticket on StubHub inside the stadium for as cheap as $63 a piece.

Ticket prices will continue to rise and fall, the success of the early season will impact the secondary market more than any offseason news, but if you don't like waiting around to find out, it's worth keeping an eye out for a great deal.

Interestingly enough, 417 Penn State fans responded to a recent Twitter poll stating that they either are a Pitt season ticket holder or know a Penn State fan who is. The idea, buying season tickets and selling the extras is ultimately cheaper than buying tickets off the secondary market, in some cases fans even bought season tickets last year in order to secure better parking for the September 10th meeting.

A good investment? That remains to be seen, but it's safe to say that winning makes any amount of money spent feel like a good idea.
