HOUSTON – As a thank you for the strong student support shown at its home opener against Southern, Houston Athletics announced Wednesday it is providing 1,500 student tickets free of charge for Saturday’s Bayou Bucket game against Rice in Reliant Stadium.

While Houston home games are free of charge for students, fans are reminded that Houston is considered the visiting team in Saturday’s match up.

UH Athletics have already distributed 1,000 free tickets to students with the remaining 500 to be given away this week through social media scavenger hunts on the Houston Athletics Facebook page and Houston Athletics Twitter page. Students must like the Houston Athletics Facebook page and/or follow the Houston Athletics Twitter page to be eligible to win free tickets.

For those students who are not lucky enough to win free tickets, student tickets for the Bayou Bucket are just $10 and can be purchased at the Houston Athletics Ticket Office in the Athletics/Alumni Center at 3100 Cullen Blvd. Student guest tickets are available for $20 each, and students can purchase a maximum of four guest tickets.

Students are strongly encouraged to purchase Bayou Bucket student tickets in advance from the Houston Athletics Ticket Office. Student tickets will only be available for purchase on the day of the game at the BHP Billiton Gate at the $10 rate, and the guest rate will not be available on the day of the game.

Bayou Bucket tickets for the general public start at just $20 and may be purchased at all Ticketmaster outlets including the Reliant Park box office, Fiesta, FYE, and select HEB stores, by phone at 1-800-745-3000 or online at Ticketmaster.com.
