I have a companion ticket to give to someone who will push me in my wheelchair from gate 2 to section six row 54 handicap seating.. You'll be free after that, unless you want to meet after game and get me back to bus stop on Stadium.

If you can wait until right before the game, do it. Go by the main entrance and tickets will be next to free so that people can get rid of them. It's almost worth it to buy them even if you already have tickets so you can leave at half time and come back in if you want.

Tomorrow tickets will be a dime a dozen.  By any of the major entrances - espcially main and stadium or on the Pioneer side of main or stadium you will be able to pick them up cheap around 15 to 20 minutes before game time. You will be able to verify this through the old fashion supply and demand method - lots of tickets in the air = too much supply and a buyers market.  Always ask the price if they don't give something cheap - offer half and say you will go to the guy next to them if they don't take it.  No one will want to wait around to sell there tickets when the game is going to start and there are a million tickets available.  In most cases I will actually talk to different scalpers and check who has the best seats before making the deal.  Whatever you do don't buy them too early from a guy that has a sign that says "need tickets". 

If you are looking to sell tickets at the game for $50/each, try to find a sucker to buy them early before you get near the stadium.  Once you get there, no one in their right mind will need to pay anywhere near face value - same goes for the BG game.
