Saturday's Penn State game is first sellout of season

Penn State's game against Ohio State will be Beaver Stadium's first sellout of the season. An athletic department representative confirmed all 106,572 available tickets have been sold.
Including Blue Band members and others not counted via ticket sales, the total attendance will likely top 107,000.
This would be the first time Penn State has surpassed 100,000 for a game this season. The largest crowd of the year so far came against Navy, totaling 98,792. Last season, Penn State had two sellouts: against Alabama and against Nebraska. Nebraska was the first game after the Jerry Sandusky grand jury presentment was released.
Attendance has been down at Penn State the last two years because of the STEP program, which requires minimum donations for season ticket holders in addition to the price they pay for tickets.
The student camping group Nittanyville has a record 140 groups this week.
