WVU football tickets on sale Monday

MORGANTOWN — Single-game and mini-package tickets for the 2013 West Virginia University football season will go on sale to the public at 9 a.m. Monday.

The Gold-Blue mini-package, which consists of tickets for the games against William & Mary, Texas and Iowa State, will be available online at WVUgame .com or by calling 800-WVU-GAME. Mini-packages cost $195 each.

Tickets for the Mountaineers’ matchup with Texas will only be available as part of the Gold-Blue mini-package, so if you want to see only Texas, you must buy the other two games with it.

Single-game tickets also will be available for home games against William & Mary, Georgia State, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and Iowa State. The matchup with Georgia State has been designated as “Family Day” with four tickets and a $25 concessions voucher available for $150 per package.

On Monday, single-game tickets also will be available in the “Family FunZone” section (133) for each home game. The Family FunZone is an alcohol-free, family-friendly section at Milan Puskar Stadium.

Single-game ticket locations will be allocated at a later date, with best-available seating based on Mountaineer Athletic Club priority, following the conclusion of season-ticket and mini-package sales.

Tickets for West Virginia’s six road contests also will be available Monday. Tickets for the Oklahoma game Sept. 7 are limited to four tickets per customer. Fans must have an existing account with the Mountaineer Ticket Office to purchase Oklahoma tickets. Oklahoma tickets will only be available by calling the Mountaineer Ticket Office at 800-WVU-GAME. All other road contests will be available by phone or online.

Tickets can be purchased online at WVUgame.com, by calling 800-WVU-GAME or in person at the Mountaineer Ticket Office in the WVU Coliseum.

Contact the Mountaineer Ticket Office by phone for information on group ticket rates for the William & Mary, Georgia State and Iowa State games. Group discounts are not available online.

West Virginia opens its season Saturday, Aug. 31, at Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium against William & Mary at noon.

  • HERTZEL COLUMN: Must WVU defense carry offense in ’14?

    The other day the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ran a story under the following headline:
    “In a year of change, must the Steelers’ offense carry the defense this year?”
    Reading that turned on a light.

  • WVU takes first step today

    Perhaps the most used — and least factual — cliché in sports is as follows:
    “There’s no tomorrow.”
    Around these parts, however, tomorrow is what they are clinging to, while putting a new twist on the cliché, turning it to, “There’s no yesterday.”

  • Pirates’ gaffe on bases proves costly

    Clint Hurdle says he and a pal often marvel over how there’s always something new to see at a baseball game.
    Too bad for Hurdle, what we watched Wednesday wrecked the Pittsburgh Pirates in a 7-5 loss.
    A timely, heads-up glance by reliever Jean Machi helped San Francisco take advantage of a gaffe on the bases by Pittsburgh, and the Giants tagged out of two runners who wandered away on the same play grab momentum and end a six-game losing streak.

  • Speedy Shazier making quick impression

    Ryan Shazier grew up the football equivalent of a Rorschach test.
    Some coaches looked at Shazier’s 6-foot-1 frame with plenty of room to grow and saw a defensive end. Others focused on his blazing speed and saw a safety.
    Not Shazier.

  • Scott sees swift title contention for Lakers

    Byron Scott was a key component of the Los Angeles Lakers’ Showtime teams, a smooth shooting guard with sizzling competitive fire. He believes his purple-and-gold championship pedigree makes him the ideal coach to return the struggling 16-time champions to NBA contention.
    “This organization is all about championships, period,” Scott said Tuesday at his introductory news conference. “We don’t look at Western Conference finals, Western Conference championships. We look at (NBA) championships. And we know we have some work ahead of us, but I’m excited. ... I love challenges anyway, so this is going to be fun.”

  • Opinion: People running NCAA may not be bumbling idiots

    Two down, one big one to go.
    And with it a growing realization that maybe the people running the NCAA aren’t the bumbling idiots everyone has been making them out to be.
    The NCAA’s agreement Tuesday to create a $70 million fund to diagnose concussions and brain injuries does more than just give some former and current athletes a bit of peace of mind — if no real money. It also extricates the organization from another serious threat to its existence, one that could have potentially bankrupted it if everyone who ever suffered a concussion playing college sports were somehow able to cash in.

  • Steelers Camp Footbal_time2.jpg Bell looking for more decisive, productive season

    Le’Veon Bell kept watching the tape over and over, equal parts pleased and puzzled by what he saw.
    There were times during his rookie season when the Pittsburgh Steelers running back would place his hand on an offensive lineman’s back and wait patiently for the hole to open.
    Sometimes, one would appear. Sometimes it wouldn’t, mainly because whatever sliver of daylight existed had already been swallowed by darkness while Bell was still trying to read the blocks in front of him.
