SC State acquires more tickets to Bulldog/Gamecock battle

Tuesday, August 7, 2007

ORANGEBURG, SC – The SC State Bulldogs and the USC Gamecocks teamed up to provide fans additional tickets to the first-ever meeting of the two intrastate rivals on Sept. 15 in Columbia. Through the efforts of the ticket offices at both universities, 1700 additional tickets will be available; however, certain restrictions apply and the lottery is no longer necessary as previously announced.

All Bulldog fans that purchased season tickets in 2006, as well as this season, are eligible to buy two (2) tickets for this historical contest. Those 2006 season ticket holders who have not renewed their order for the upcoming season will have until August 20, 2007, to do so in order to become eligible.

An allotment of tickets will also be available for SC State students to purchase, and any remaining tickets will be made available for purchase by the general public. All tickets are $35 each.

The 2007 season is an historic one for SC State, which will celebrate its Centennial (1907-2007) in football and play two Division I-A schools for the first time. In addition to the USC game, Sept. 15, the Bulldogs also meet Air Force in the season opener Sept. 1 at Colorado Springs, Colorado.
