JONESBORO (8/26/09) - Tickets for the Arkansas State football team's game against Louisville on Oct. 31 at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium are now available through the ASU Ticket Office.
The ASU Ticket Office has a limited number of tickets available for the game that are on sale for $45 each with priority given to Red Wolf Club members and season ticket holders. ASU-Louisville game-ticket applications for non-Red Wolf Club members and season ticket holders will be reviewed and filled beginning Sept. 15 if tickets are still available.
The game will be the first ever meeting between ASU and Louisville, which will be just the second Big East opponent the Red Wolves have ever played. ASU split a pair of games with Cincinnati, defeating the Bearcats in 1975 before playing them again in 1998. Louisville has been to nine bowl games over the last 11 seasons and finished the 2006 year ranked No. 6 in the final Associated Press Poll. The $63-million Papa John's Cardinal Stadium was opened in September of 1998. The state-of-the-art facility features 42,000 seats and is the only university-owned and operated stadium in the nation with all seats being of the chairback variety.
Louisville and ASU will meet again in 2010 when the Cardinals travel to Jonesboro in the return game of two-year home-and-home series.
