The online student ticket process will ensure the reservation, return, and gameday use of tickets is a great experience from beginning to end so Baylor students can take part in cheering on their Bears as they begin the 2019 season.
The student ticket allotment can seat 70% of Baylor students. Most schools in the Big 12 only seat 25% of students.
The 2016 average attendance was 9,000 students per game. The allotment at McLane Stadium with standing room only ticket included is 9,000.
The student section, consuming the entire lower concourse from goal line to goal line, is one of the best seating locations in the conference.

Baylor has a number of policies to ensure as many students as possible have the opportunity to attend home games at McLane Stadium. The policies are intended to encourage active participation and responsibility for attending home football games. It is our hope to pack the stands with the best fans in the world...our students!
Students that reserve a ticket and do not attend the scheduled home game will be placed on a restricted listing for the next home game. Whereas all other students are able to begin reserving tickets 5 days prior to the home football game, students under this restriction will be able to begin reserving tickets 4 days prior to the home football game.
Students who do not attend a game due to inclement weather conditions are still subject to restrictions for the following home game.
There are no restrictions for students who return their unused ticket by Thursday prior to the home game.
Students who attempt to sell a reserved student ticket will be prohibited from reserving tickets for the remainder of the season.
Students who attempt to transfer their ticket to another student or non-student will be restricted from reserving tickets for two home games.
The University recognizes that some home games may require accommodations outside the normal policy. This includes restricting tickets for certain games or traditions that are essential to the Baylor experience.
