FSU-USF on pace for sellout
The FSU-USF game is two-thirds of the way to a sellout.
USF reported Wednesday approximately 44,000 tickets already have been sold (or set aside) for the Sept. 24 contest -- a potential top-25 clash -- at Raymond James Stadium, which has an official seating capacity of 65,890.
The last Bulls-'Noles encounter in Tampa, in 2012, attracted USF's largest home crowd ever (69,383).
The 44,000 tickets accounted for include FSU's allotment (10,000) and 11,500 being held for USF students, the school indicated. Roughly 80 percent of the lower-level seats (about 15,000) -- available only by the purchase of a season ticket or a three-game flex plan -- have been sold.
Approximately 60 percent (7,000) of the seats in the 300 level, available as single-game tickets, also are gone.
Prices began at $85 and $95 for the game, depending on location, but USF indicated those figures may rise based on demand. Tickets available Wednesday on StubHub began at $103.
