After going on sale Monday at 10 a.m., Baylor football gave out their full allotment of student tickets by 2:15 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon. Student Activities reported selling out of student tickets after distributing a record 6,700 tickets on day one of student ticket sales.
Associate Executive Associate Athletic Director for External Affairs Nick Joos said that over the two days, nearly 10,000 tickets were distributed to students. That is less student tickets than issued against Oklahoma, but that is due to the fact that South End Zone tickets will not be available for overflow. With the extra seats added and a sold out student section, it appears that Baylor is poised to break the all-time attendance record of 51,385 set on Oct. 28, 2006 against Texas A&M.
No. 9 Baylor football (10-1, 7-1) is playing their final game at Floyd Casey Stadium this Saturday night against in-state rival No. 25 University of Texas (8-3, 7-1). With a win, Baylor could clinch a share of the Big 12 Championship for the first time in school history.
Baylor will play Texas at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday afternoon at Floyd Casey Stadium. The game will be nationally broadcast on Fox. Baylor will be wearing throwback uniforms to model the ones worn in 1950 during the first season at the Case.
