Cowboys Stadium Reaching Max Capacity For Massive College Football Opener

By Adam Kramer   Jul. 06, 2011

The opening game between LSU and Oregon on September 3rd is gaining steam. Cowboys Stadium is already nearing full capacity as one of year’s most anticipated games get the 2011 festivities under way, under the bright lights and the big screens.

Nearly 80,000 tickets have already been sold for the game, and LSU fans purchased their 37,000 tickets in record time. This, in turn, broke a school record for a regular-season road game. Oregon has done its part as well, selling out their 15,000 allocated tickets with ease.

While we know that Jerry’s World comes equipped with all the finest amenities a football fan could possibly want or need, it also has “standing room only” ticket options for the fans that want the game without the seat, and without the massive price tag. After all, there’s money to be made, folks, and Mr. Jones is very good at that.

According to CNBC reporter Darren Rovell, these ticket options are still available for the LSU/Oregon showdown but are more expensive than the average Cowboy ticket.

The Dallas Cowboys are charging $50 for standing room only tickets for LSU vs. Oregon. At Cowboys game, that ticket is $29.

The college football fan in me wants to gloat. And while this number is a surprise to some, it really isn’t much of a shocker when you think about the teams and fan bases involved. For what it’s worth, last year’s Cowboy Stadium showdown between TCU and Oregon State drew over just 46,000.

Standing room only aside, my couch will be just fine on the evening of September 3rd, which cannot get here soon enough.

Nor is it really that surprising that standing-room-only tickets are almost twice as high as they would be for a Cowboys game. [...]

      I really would like to see Texas Tech play Alabama in that stadium. I would love to go but refuse to pay that kind of dough unless my Red Raiders are the ones playing a big time team

      As an LSU season ticket holder, I was truly excited when I saw this game on the schedule. I put my name in the mix for tickets to this classic matchup between the Bayou Bengals and the Ducks of Oregon. However, when the ticket announcements came out, I found out that I was selected to receive seats in section 400 – oxygen mask required. I decided to pass on the rafter seats and tried to locate decent seats on StubHub. The cheapest ticket prices on that website are $300 each. Thanks, but no thanks! I’ll be watching this game from the comfort of my couch…

      turns out Glenn Beck will… he just booked next summer, and I guarantee it’ll max the capacity. He drew between 500k-750k at the Mall, just wait.
