Like cliff diving or ferret ownership, football is an endeavor best watched from the sidelines. Witness acts of bodily bravery with today's GrouponLive deal to the Portland State University Vikings' home opener versus the Southern Oregon University Raiders on Saturday, September 3, at 1:05 p.m. Choose between two seating options:
• For $22, you get two lower-level reserved tickets (a $44 value). Reserved seating preference starts from section 96 through section 92 and will move to the west side of the stadium if needed.
• For $32, you get two 50-yard-line tickets (a $64 value). Seats will be in section 118 on a first-come, first-served basis.
The PSU Vikings charge through their competition, tackling rival elbow-padded athletes on the recently renovated JELD-WEN Field. Led by starting quarterback Connor Kavanaugh, the Vikings battle the SOU Raiders during their home opener for ranking, reputation, and extended curfew hours. Three hours prior to kickoff in front of Kingston Bar and Grill, a free-to-all-ages Viking Coors Light tailgate busies fans with BBQ, Ben & Jerry's, Voodoo Doughnuts, college football live on outdoor televisions, kid activities, and beverages before they enter the stadium to marvel at its recent $31 million renovation. A new video scoreboard allows fans to follow the game without a telescope, and revamped field turf ensures that players are no longer dragged out of bounds by sentient weeds.
