Ball State Nears Sellout

Aug. 29, 2005

Only a few hundred tickets remain for Iowa’s football season opener against Ball State Saturday. Kickoff is set for 11:10 a.m. in Kinnick Stadium for the 10th-ranked Hawkeyes.

Ticket Manager Dave Sandstrum said the game is expected to be a sellout (70,585). The Hawkeyes played before home sellouts every game last year and have sold out 11 straight games in Kinnick Stadium.

Most of the remaining tickets, but not all, are singles.

Sandstrum did indicate that a large number of tickets are waiting to be picked up, by its buyers, in will call. Those tickets can be either picked up at the Carver Arena Ticket Office this week or at Kinnick Stadium, beginning 8 a.m. Saturday.
