Penn State is excited for their game against their game against Michigan on Saturday. A little too excited. Penn State Athletics oversold the student section tickets for the annual White Out game on October 12 and the university has asked that some students kindly hand-in their highly coveted tickets with a trade-in program. Onward State details the trade-in options: According to Penn State, they screwed up ticket sales this summer and oversold student tickets for the Michigan game. To make sure everyone can fit in the student section, students have the option to trade in tickets for this game for one of three packages. All of the packages include a chairback seat in the Upper South endzone for the game, $10 in LionCash, and a 2013 White Out t-shirt. It is not clear how Penn State has extra seats in Upper South endzone since the game is an announced sellout. In addition to the upper endzone ticket, each package offers something unique: The first package offers either a guaranteed 50 percent off of student tickets next season or two free tickets to next year’s Homecoming game. The second package features a $200 donation to THON in your name. The third package gives students pre-game on-field access to Penn State’s game against either Illinois, Purdue, or Nebraska later this season. All three offers expire on Thursday at midnight.

Penn State athletics sent an email to all student ticket holders on Monday night announcing that the soldout Michigan game on Saturday was oversold. Penn State Assistant Athletic Director for Communications Jeff Nelson claims that a Ticketmaster glitch is responsible for all this confusion. The deal is a rather generous offer, however it’s rather quizzical why no one noticed that the game was oversold until less than five days until the game.
