Scandal Not Hurting Penn State Football Season Ticket Sales
Even in the middle of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal, Penn State University reports that over 3,400 new season ticket packages have been sold for the 2012 season. According to the release, roughly 94 percent of 2011 Nittany Lion season ticket holders have renewed their seats for the coming season. The 3,400 new season ticket purchases more than doubles the number from the year before.
The 2012 season marks the first for new head coach Bill O’Brien and his staff, which will return 34 letterwinners and nine starters as they open their season against Ohio on Sept. 1.
