Penn State football fans are being advised by PSU officials to be cautious of counterfeit tickets for the upcoming Ohio State game.
The counterfeit tickets include those using the print-at-home format and illegally reproduced single-game tickets purchased from nonauthorized sources. PSU officials have notified law enforcement about the situation.
The highly-anticipated White-Out contest at Beaver Stadium features unbeaten top-10 foes and is set for 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29.
PSU officials are encouraging fans to only buy tickets through PSU-authorized sources — namely the PSU athletic ticket office and Ticketmaster. Fans purchasing tickets from unauthorized sources (including StubHub, Vivid Seats, Craigslist, EBay and ticket brokers) assume the risk that tickets could be counterfeit or the bar codes could have been invalidated.
Anyone attempting to enter Beaver Stadium with a counterfeit ticket or invalid bar code on their ticket will be denied entry.
