Semi OT: Question about student tickets for the game

Submitted by Mitch Cumstein on October 13th, 2009 at 1:04 PM

I'm a recent alum going to the game on Saturday. I'm pretty excited for it, it'll probably be the only game I can get back for this year. I have a student ticket that isn't "validated". I do have my old ID card also though. My question is whether having the card is enough, or does security do any sort of scanning or checking of the actual ID cards to get in with a student ticket?

Thanks.

To piggy back off this thread...for current students, what is the ticket market looking like for this weekend? Also known as, should I even bother asking a friend to look for me is just scalping a ticket for $5 before the game the better bet based on how few people appear to be going to this game?

Be careful waiting all the way until right before the game for student tickets. Since it is fall break, the students selling the tickets will be students going home for the weekend. They won't be standing outside the stadium trying to make 5 bucks- they'll be home begging mommy and daddy for 50 instead.

FWIW in 2003 I got my girlfriend-now-wife into the game with an unvalidated ticket by scanning an MCard, changing the image to have her face, and then printing it out and putting it in one of the card holders they gave the freshmen. I don't know if they still have those card holders or make you take the card out, but it worked just fine back then.

I have two MCards just for ease.... With 100% identical names, I've brought my brother in right behind me, checked in from the same guy. No need to cover anything up

Hell, for the EMU game this season my buddy used my old MCard and showed it to the ticket-checker upside-down (he was paranoid despite my assurances)... the dude didn't even ask for it to be shown face-up. They really don't care.
