Today’s junior class allotment was sold out in 35 minutes after the 7 a.m. start, according to Jeff Garner, Assistant Athletic Director for Ticketing Sales and Service.
The sophomore class sale will begin Wednesday, June 25 at 7 a.m. and the freshmen will close the student sale Thursday, June 26 starting at 7 a.m.
Penn State sophomores and freshmen who want to be part of the passion and pride of the energetic student section for James Franklin’s first season as head coach should prepare for the sale to ensure the smoothest experience possible.

Akron (Sept. 6), Massachusetts (Sept. 20) and Temple (Nov. 15) also will visit Beaver Stadium this fall.
The online sale is open only to full-time registered students with each class being allocated a specific amount of tickets. A "Sold Out" message will be posted to Student Central when ticket resources have been exhausted for that day's respective class sale.

The 2014 student prices will be the same as last year: $218 for a season ticket (7 games), $20 for White Out T-shirt, and $25 for a Student Nittany Lion Club membership.

Franklin was named Penn State's 16th head football coach on January 11. A product of Langhorne, Pa., Franklin led Vanderbilt University to unprecedented success the past three years as head coach, including consecutive nine-win seasons and bowl victories the past two years, as well as back-to-back Top 25 finishes, all for the first time in Vanderbilt history. In his 20th year of coaching, Franklin was a two-time All-PSAC quarterback at East Stroudsburg University and set or tied 23 school records.
Penn State returns 40 letterwinners and 15 starters (7 offense, 7 defense, 1 specialist) for the upcoming season. The Nittany Lions open the season Aug. 30 vs. UCF in the Croke Park Classic in Dublin, Ireland.
