Counterfeit tickets were a problem ahead of Michigan’s loss to Michigan State in Week 6, and fans should be on the lookout for those again ahead of Michigan-Penn State on Saturday.
From a Penn State release:
“Nittany Lion football fans are being advised by Penn State Intercollegiate Athletics that it has seen a significant increase in counterfeit tickets, including the print-at-home format and illegally reproduced single game tickets purchased from non-authorized sources for home football games this season.
Penn State officials have notified law enforcement of counterfeit tickets being in the marketplace.
Due to these incidents and the tremendous interest in Saturday’s game between No. 2 Penn State and No. 19/15 Michigan, Intercollegiate Athletics encourages fans purchasing tickets to only purchase them through Penn State authorized sources.”
The counterfeit tickets last time around weren’t too convincing. Don’t fall for them.

Noticeable mistakes here:
- The tickets don’t actually say “Michigan State” anywhere
Those are pretty easy to spot. We’ll keep this updated if we spot any fake Michigan-Penn State tickets.
