The students in College Park are fired up about what they’ve seen through two weeks of the season. After a dominant 2-0 start and one of the most explosive offensive beginnings to a season his history, the Maryland student body is buying in to Mike Locksley and the Terrapins.
With a Friday night showdown coming up against Penn State, the demand for student tickets has reached an all-time high.
According to a report from Andy Kostka of The Diamondback, Maryland has received 13,000 student ticket requests for the Sept. 27 matchup between the Terrapins and Nittany Lions. That’s 3,000 more than the student capacity, which is 10,000.
Per Kostka, it’s the most requests the school has ever received since the lottery system began in 2002. The only other lottery game was against West Virginia in 2007.
