TCU’s season opener against LSU at AT&T Stadium has not officially
been announced as a sell out but a cursory search for tickets online showed
that only standing room only remains available.
The 8 p.m. Aug. 31 game will be televised by ESPN.
Fans can still purchase Spirit Passes for $40 each that will get them in the building for the Cowboys Classic. Both schools sold out of their allotments of 25,000 tickets, according to a source.
Friday afternoon you could still purchase a group of 50
spirit passes for about $1,940 before taxes and fees.
Stubhub.com, the aftermarket ticket reseller site, was selling spirit passes going for between $45 and $71 Friday afternoon.
The cheapest seats available on the site were $75 for upper reserve on the 24th row in section 404. One delusional soul was selling two upper reserve tickets in section 434 (in the corner of the end zone) for $1,700 each. Good luck with that.
TCU last played in the stadium against BYU in 2011. The Horned Frogs won 38-28. TCU opened the 2010 season with a 30-21 win over Oregon State in the Cowboys Classic. LSU beat Oregon 40-27 in the Cowboys Classic in 2011 before a then record 87,711 in attendance. The Tigers beat Texas A&M 41-24 in the Cotton Bowl played at the stadium after the 2010 season.
The first Cowboys Classic pitted BYU and Oklahoma in 2009. BYU won 14-13 in front of 75,437 fans.
A year ago, Alabama beat Michigan 41-14 in front of 90,413 fans.
