There will not be public ticket sales for Big Ten football games this fall.
Penn State Vice President of Intercollegiate Athletics Sandy Barbour said during a news conference Wednesday that there still could be some people in the stands, however.
“We are not going to permit fans in general sale of tickets,” Barbour said. “We are looking to see what we can do on a campus-by-campus basis to accommodate the families of our student-athletes both home and away, as well as the families of staff.
“But, as a conference, we’ve made a decision, no public sale of tickets.”
As it relates specifically to the Nittany Lions, they were almost certainly going to be unable to sell tickets or honor some or all of their season ticket holders anyway because of coronavirus mitigation limits on gatherings in Pa. that allow for just 250 people to be together outdoors. Additionally, the Steelers and Eagles are currently playing in empty stadiums, as is Pitt.
