    Anyone feel that someone won't get in without id? I've got a chance to go from a friend and just want to be sure, thanks.

    If you dont get in one time just go to a different gate closer to kickoff they wont have time then.

    All the employees I talked to claim they're actually serious about it this year. That is why they are now allowing you to "upgrade" the ticket to general admission for $30. If you really want to try, just go about a half hour before kickoff when traffic is busiest at the student gates. They may not even bother when faced with huge crowds.

    I really don't think it is going to be possible. Think about how crowded the gates get before kickoff. Do you think they could possibly argue with someone if they are like.....ahh man I forgot My ID and a crowd of 100 people are behind you in line trying to get in. All hell will break loose if people start feeling like they might miss part of the game

    Use the "forgot my ID line" and if they won't let you in then go to the another entrance and try again..

    The student tickets for Cinci and Marshall say student ID required. Not that those words neccessarily mean anything - good luck.

    Nah, every student ticket I've ever used has that printed on them, and I have never once been asked. Haven't tried student tickets since 02, however, but I had a student season ticket with a name something like "Naferti Abdullequella", and they never even asked.

    We were out of town for two games last year and had student tickets... we gave them away (well sold at face value) to friends and one game they had no problem, the other game they couldn't get in...

    As an usher I can tell you that there is little to no chance that you will be able to get in without your student ID this year. The changes that they made is going to force you to pay the extra money or be disapointed. Now you can use another student's id but you have to transfer the tickets to them.

    It is a shame that it has to be this way, but they finally have a system in place that they have talked about for years.

    Killer,
    Are they planning on scanning Bucki-id's, or simply loooking at them?

    I think they are serious this year and heard they will be scanning both the ticket and BuckIDs.

    Here's the new policy anouncement.

    According to the anouncement, the policy will be expanded to faculty/staff tix next year. If they actually start doing this I'm guessing scalper prices might increase. I already sold my UC tickets to a ticketbroker for quite a bit more than I expected.
