Complimentary Playoff Football Tickets Available for 500 Students

Complimentary tickets will be available for students to attend the NCAA Division III football playoff game on Saturday, Nov. 26, between St. Thomas and Monmouth (Ill.) at O’Shaughnessy Stadium, but there is a catch.

Only 500 tickets will be given away beginning at noon today, Monday, Nov. 21, at the Box Office in Murray-Herrick Campus Center. One ticket will be given to each student with a valid UST ID on a first-come, first-served basis. The tickets are courtesy of Jane Canney, vice president for student affairs.

Because the game is an NCAA event, passes and St. Thomas IDs will not be accepted. There will be no advanced sales for tickets, which are $8 for adults and $4 for students; children under 2 are admitted free. Tickets can be purchased at the O’Shaughnessy Stadium ticket windows starting at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday. Gates will open at 11 a.m. Kickoff is at noon.

St. Thomas sports an 11-0 record while Monmouth is 10-1, undefeated in its past 10 games after losing to Wartburg (Iowa) in its season opener Sept. 3.
