Less than 10K tickets remain for Blackout Game against No. 2 Oregon

Less than 10,000 tickets remain for the Blackout Game against second-ranked Oregon at Sun Devil Stadium on Oct. 18. Tickets are available at TheSunDevils.com, the Arizona State Ticket Office outside of the Carson Student-Athlete Center, or by phone at 480-727-0000.

Due to the fact that a sellout crowd is expected for this game, fans are advised to arrive early. Stadium gates will open at 4:30 p.m., and kickoff is slated for 6 p.m.

"We have received an overwhelming response this past week from our `Blackout The Duck' campaign and are urging fans to purchase tickets now before it sells out," said Rocky Harris, senior associate AD for external relations. "This is not only an important game for our football team, but also for the Sun Devil faithful as it offers them a chance to show they are the best fans in the Pac-12 in front of a national ESPN audience. We need our supporters to rally together and prove once and for all that our home field advantage is second to none."

Arizona State formed a Political Action Committee, the Concerned Citizens of the Pac-12, after the Oregon Duck announced his candidacy for President of the United States on Sept. 5. Take up the fight by Blacking Out the Duck and his platform, and unite with 71,706 of your friends all draped in black at Sun Devil Stadium.

Starting with the launch of "Part 1" on Oct. 1, new YouTube videos have been released throughout the next two weeks that highlight a different theme brought to the public's attention by the Concerned Citizens of the Pac-12. Along with the series of videos, a variety of radio, print, outdoor and social media, along with a dedicated website, have been unveiled as the primary drive to sellout the game against Oregon.
