UB expects big crowd for Army, urges early fan arrival

With steady ticket sales this week, the University at Buffalo may have its largest crowd in a long time for Saturday’s football game against Army at UB Stadium. UB drew an announced crowd of 24,713 for the Baylor game on Sept. 12, 2014.

It’s a result of the Bulls’ 4-0 start, including last week’s 42-13 win at Rutgers. Going back to the final four games of 2017, UB will be seeking to win its eighth game in a row. Last time that happened was in the 1946 and 1947 seasons when the Bulls won nine straight.

General admission tickets are available but an allotment is being held for students based on attendance at previous games.

Kickoff will be at noon. Due to the anticipated crowd – capacity at UB Stadium is listed as 30,270 – fans are encouraged to arrive early.

Stampede Square will open at 9 a.m. and country music star Joe Nichols will perform a free concert at 10 a.m.

Army defeated UB, 21-17, last season at Michie Stadium in West Point before 24,017. The Bulls defeated the Black Knights at UB Stadium two years ago, 23-20, in overtime before an announced 19,217.

Tickets are available at the Alumni Arena ticket office weekdays from 9 a.m.–5 p.m. Also, tickets can also be purchased at UB Stadium on Saturday starting at 9 a.m., but early arrival is again encouraged.

UB football is only team in nation not to allow QB sack this season
