At the University of Georgia, just getting students to the game has been more of a concern.
According to The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer, 17,910 student tickets are available for each game but since 2009 the average turnout has been just 11,800.
"Needless to say that's a hole in our stadium," UGA athletics director Greg McGarity said in February. "We've sold the tickets to our students but they've not shown up."
The UGA athletic board is trying one solution this season: 2,000 tickets are made available to young alumni -- those who have graduated from the school within the past five years.
Georgia also encourages students to use all of their tickets or donate tickets back to the ticket office or an eligible student -- or face penalties through a point scale system. Three penalty "strikes" for unused tickets in a season deem that student ineligible for postseason tickets and the following season's tickets.
