What is the difference between buying a Day Pass and a Season Pass?
The Day Pass is a one time use pass that you buy through our ticketing portal. It allows you general admission access to the lot for one game. There are no additional benefits or perks.
The Season Pass is the way to go. By purchasing the Season Pass you don't have to worry about buying a wristband every week. Also, by purchasing a Season Pass you will be able to skip the entry line and walk right into the lot. Holding a Season Pass also allows you to pick up your wristband a day early to avoid the gameday lines. For these reasons the Season Pass costs $100.00.
When do Day Passes go on sale?
Day Passes always go on sale the week of the home football game they are for (typically Monday). Example: If there is a game on Saturday September 7th Day Passes would go on sale Monday September 2nd.
