Who is ready for some football?
This year, Ball State University and Indiana University will each kick off their football seasons at Lucas Oil Stadium on September 3 at 7 PM. Both teams will be showcasing their new coaches – Pete Lembo for IU and Kevin Wilson for BSU. Tickets are already on sale starting at $20 for upper-level, $30 for mid-level, and $40-$50 for lower level seats. There will be student sections on each side of the stadium.
As a Ball State alumna, I am SO excited about this game! I think it will bring so many students and alumni downtown to tailgate, watch, and celebrate two Indiana teams kicking off football
season. Even if you’re not a fan of BSU or IU, it is a great (and affordable!) opportunity to see a game at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Ball State decided to host the game at Lucas Oil in hopes of generating more revenue for BSU. Their goal is to sell 40,000 tickets – which would make $700,000 more than hosting the game at Scheumann Stadium. Season ticket holders will receive one ticket to the game – the rest of us can buy tickets by visiting Ticketmaster.
