    JT Stadium Seating Help

    Hey guys, it's been awhile since I've been to a game at Jack Trice and it's become my responsibility to get tickets to the game and there is a group of 3 of us going. Just wanted to know, are seats in Section H row 12 decent? I know on the seating chart they're close to the south endzone goal-line, but I wasn't sure how far up the upper deck? Or how about Section N row 27 near mid-field? How many rows are there on the upper deck and lower level, just so I can compare?

    One of the people going is my dad, and with his knees the few number the steps the better but we still want decent seats. Oh and before I forget, these are for the Texas game in two weeks. Thanks guys for your help in advance.

    Thanks for the help, although I don't know how dad would feel being in a Handicap seat as he's not really handicap. He can get up and down the steps fine, just know that the fewer we have to deal with the happier camper I'll have to deal with after getting into our seats or on our way out of the stadium. Again, thanks for the help guys and any advice or info is welcome.

    30 rows in the upper deck. Not really a bad seat up there at all, as you can easily see plays develop. If you're in H:12, you won't really have to turn to see the video board. N:27 might be tough on dad's knees.

    Lower deck has 35-37 rows on the west side (depending on the ADA seating areas) and on the east side in front of the club section. The other sections on the east side (under the overhang) have 47 rows.

    With the new video board, it doesn't matter that you're on the south goal line in section H. I'd take those. My season tickets are section O row 12 - it's just above the stairway tunnel that leads to the upper level, so not too many stairs. Being in the middle of the field is nice but the video board has equalized the view for everyone regardless of where the play is on the field.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: JT Stadium Seating Help

    Thanks for all the help guys. However, just found out we're not going to the game anymore

    Dad found out about it becoming a night game and wasn't up for the trip back home (roughly 2 - 2 1/2 hours). Definitely will bookmark this thread as now our next goal is to make it to the A$M game (so long as it's 11am or 2:30). Again, thanks for the help guys as I greatly appreciate it.
