Well, the time is fast approaching for purchasing season tickets. I realized very quickly last year that getting tickets to road games will probably never be easier for the rest of my life, and as such took it upon myself to buy a ticket to the MSU game for this year.
MSU is all I was interested in last year because it was the only one both close enough and important enough for me to part way with my scant cash for. This next year, however, there are several, and I would like to make these more fun by getting some of my non-student friends involved.
So I would like to pose a question to students, former or current, who have experience buying the road game tickets around the time the students order season tickets:
Do any of Penn State, Notre Dame, or Ohio State, restrict their visitor tickets in any way that would make someone other than the original purchaser able to use them? I know from this year that MSU does not, but before I take money from my friends and family to send student friends down to the ticket office and be my middle man, I would like to know for certain that I will not end up with a ticket only good for the student who bought it and has no interest in going.
EDIT: It seems that I didn't do a well enough job explaining this. I'm planning to buy these through the University's away allotment, NOT by getting them from random people from the other school. So needing a student ID for, say, a ND student isn't the issue, its more or less whether they put your name on the ticket when UM sends the orders in and make you show a driver's license to prove you're the original purchaser.
Of those three, OSU and ND are the more important. My odds of being able to go to PSU, much less get people to go with me, are minimal, but not impossible. Ohio State and Notre Dame are prime targets, however, and any word from someone who's purchased student road tickets to go to these places before, preferably recently, would be fantastic. As much as I doubt that they are restricted, the ticket office only lets you buy one ticket and they take all your info, so I want to be ABSOLUTELY SURE, because those would be one expensive mistake on my part...
Also, in case you're a student reading this thread and wondering what I'm talking about in the first place, there is generally a part of an FAQ about football tickets updated when they release the application that tells you the days that you can sign up to buy a road ticket. They don't advertise it, and so you must actively look for this information. At the time they state, you have to physically go down to the ticket office (Next to Yost), fill out an application, and pay for any and all tickets. In the event of high demand, they do a drawing, and you get your money back if you aren't drawn. Now go get some money together so you can be part of the Michigan Road Show and support your team behind enemy lines.
