BATON ROUGE - It took less than five minutes for LSU to sell out of its allotment of mini-plans on Saturday morning as the 350 three-game ticket books were snapped up by buyers on www.LSUtix.net, assistant athletic director for ticket operations Brian Broussard said.
Saturday was the first day that the mini-plan and single-game tickets were available to the general public. The three-game mini-plan included games against West Virginia, Mississippi State and Louisiana-Monroe.
"The mini-plans were gone in a matter of minutes," Broussard said. "It was a great deal so it didn't take long to sell them."
Broussard said that LSU's non-conference game against West Virginia is sold out and that only 30 tickets remain for the McNeese State game. Broussard said that 250 tickets are left for LSU's home-opener against Mississippi State on Sept. 18 and that 500 tickets are still available for the Louisiana-Monroe game in November.
Prior to Saturday's sale to the general public, LSU had already sold out its home games against Tennessee, Alabama and Ole Miss.
"There are still some tickets left, but I think we'll be sold out in a couple days," Broussard said.
Fans can purchase tickets 24 hours a day on the Internet at www.LSUtix.net or they can buy them in person at the LSU Athletic Ticket Office again on Monday at 9 a.m. or by calling 225.578.2184.
LSU opens its season on Saturday when the Tigers travel to Atlanta to face North Carolina in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game. Tickets for the contest are still available through the LSU Athletic Ticket Office at www.LSUtix.net.
