PENN STATE SEAT PRICES 

Penn State is introducing a variable price structure for individual game football tickets beginning this season. The change means higher single game prices for premiere matchups, such as against Ohio State, and cheaper seats for non-marquee matchups. Penn State Director of Athletics Dave Joyner says fan feedback led to the change. Single game tickets will be available as low as $40 for some games. Ohio State, Wisconsin and Iowa are among Big Ten programs already utilizing variable pricing.
