Some Ohio State-Penn State Tickets Will Set You Back $200

Is it worth $200?

Penn State is joining most schools around the nation, including Ohio State, in adopting a structured pricing plan for football tickets depending on the game and location of the seat. But for 2014, it means the most expensive ticket for the Oct. 25 game against Ohio State will be $200. That game, almost certain to be held at night, is the most expensive ticket on Penn State's 2014 schedule. 

Tickets for 2013 Big Ten champion and Rose Bowl winner Michigan State will be as much as $150. The same price goes for Northwestern. The cheapest seats for the season will be $40 upper level tickets for the Akron and UMass games. The same seats will go for $100 when the Buckeyes come to Beaver Stadium.

A Great Value at just $3.17 per Ohio State Point Scored!!
(Obviously we are going to hang another 63 on them just for good measure!)

It makes sense that the tickets for the OSU game are the most expensive, OSU is their rival afterall...

A 2nd mortgage on my single-wide won't even allow me to bring my wife along!  Oh well.

If you phone PSU's ticket office and tell them that you're an OSU fan, they should be able to give you a discount price. After all, they are charging $200 because Ohio State is PSU's "bitter rival." Since PSU is not a rival of Ohio State, though, they can charge us $100 for a ticket.

At some point, this may kill the secondary market.  What scalper will go out and buy 20-40 tickets at $200 face value and turn around to sell them for $200 or less.  At that point, you end up with a lot of empty seats in the stadium (see picture above).

That's an awful lot of money for PSU fans to watch their team get beat down 

We were born to love Ohio State and hate that team up north.

$200 to get bags of urine lobbed at me?

A man got to have a code...

I wish tOSU's pricing policy reduced the face value for tickets like Fa&m and SDSU - $40 is reasonable for the Akron, Buffalo, Kent State games.

At a time when many pro and college teams are having difficulty selling out their stadiums, Penn State decides to jump on the dynamic pricing bandwagon.  The universities running these big-time athletic programs are delusional in judging their worth in this economy and desperate for revenue.  Not a great combination.
