There is going to be a packed house at Heinz Field on Saturday when Pitt and Penn State play for the first time since 2000.
That’s not a question. What’s up for debate right now is just how split the stands will be at the Panthers home stadium.
With just three days until game day, Pitt Athletic Director Scott Barnes is maintaining the stands will be filled with a majority of Pitt fans.
“This is our house and I think that single game sales and the fact that 16,000 of our season ticket holders requested additional seats is a great example of our fans stepping up,” he said, according to PennLive.
There have been a lot of guesses about how many Penn State fans will be in the 65,050-seat stadium on Saturday. There have been reports of Nittany Lions fans buying Pitt season ticket packages just to get tickets to Saturday’s in-state showdown.
As of Wednesday afternoon, there were about 1,100 tickets for the game available on StubHub. The cheapest (standing room only) was going for $150, with the most expensive seat listed at $1,500.
