Tickets are sold out for the upcoming Horned Frog football game against rival Baylor at Amon G. Carter Stadium.
As of Wednesday, the only option for non-student fans who had not purchased tickets for Saturday’s game was to purchase standing room tickets for $15. The last sellout at Amon G. Carter Stadium was against Utah last November with a crowd of 50,307.
Current students only need to show their valid student ID for admittance to the game.
Baylor and TCU have been rivals for over 100 years, since both schools were located in Waco. Both teams played in the Southwest Conference until the conference disbanded in 1996.
Junior Daniel Zidell said the sold out game does not surprise him because of the national attention TCU has received from being the fourth-ranked team in the nation.
“Fort Worth has galvanized itself behind this football team, and therefore I would expect large crowds at football games,” he said.
Mark Cohen, director of athletics media relations, said TCU set a season ticket record this year selling 19,119 season tickets for the 2010 season. The previous record for season ticket sales was set in 2007 when 14,490 tickets were sold.
Junior strategic communication major Juliann Walker said this is one of the most exciting times to be a Horned Frog fan. Walker said bigger crowds at football games make the game more exciting.
