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 for tickets to see the San Jose State Spartans take on the Nevada Wolf Pack at Spartan Stadium on Saturday, September 17, at 1 p.m. Tickets are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis at will call. Buyers who'd like to sit together should redeem their Groupon vouchers at the same time. Choose between the following ticket and seating options:
• For $19, you get two general-admission tickets (up to a $50 value before fees, or up to a $64.80 value after fees).
• For $29, you get two reserved tickets (up to a $70 value before fees, or up to an $87.30 value after fees). Seats will be located in sections 109–110, 112–114, or 130.
The Spartans bubble with sophomore spirit as head coach Mike MacIntyre begins his second season and four 2010 freshman All-Americans tackle long-held school records. Groupon holders can enjoy stellar sightlines from reserved or general-admission seats, ensuring they don't have to hire a Shakespearian drama troupe to recount each play in iambic pentameter. Sophomore placekicker Harrison Waid will thrill the crowd with powerful punts and graceful drop kicks. Linebacker Keith Smith—the first Spartan to claim the Western Athletic Conference's titles of Freshman of the Year and Most Stylish Shoulder Pads—looks to catch rivals' running backs with his brilliant tackles.
Like a freakishly huge peacock, Spartan Stadium will teem with gold, white, and blue as the team kicks off its first home game of 2011. Just east of the stadium, a Fan Fiesta tailgating party invites guests to model free T-shirts from Bank of the West or grab a mini-football, and ticket holders receive a tabletop football game at the gate.
San Jose State Spartans
For the better part of a century, Spartan Stadium has been a cornerstone of San Jose State athletics and university life, hosting more than 300 home football games since 1933, as well as soccer games and concerts packed with more than 30,000 fans. Open during home football games, the Jeff Garcia Hall of Champions pays tribute to more than 300 former athletes and coaches, including pro football stars, golfers, and judo experts. Beyond the football team's keep, the other bastion of SJSU athletics, the Event Center, opened its doors in the late '80s to house men's and women's basketball contests as well as a weight room for students and a take-a-foam-finger, leave-a-foam-finger depository for fans. Spartan athletics maintains a high pedigree throughout their programs, including recent WAC championships for their men's and women's golf teams.
