USC fans know when they can buy single-game and mini-plan football tickets, but they should not expect to find any seats for the showdown with rival Georgia unless they are a member of the school's booster club or work for the university.
The public can buy mini-plans starting Aug. 24 and single-game seats on Aug. 31, the school said Wednesday.
The Gamecocks have seven homes games this season: East Carolina ($40 per ticket), UAB ($35), Missouri ($60), Georgia ($70), Tennessee ($60), Arkansas ($60) and Wofford ($30).
But the Oct. 6 game versus the Bulldogs will likely be sold out.
Tickets for that high-demand contest go on sale Aug. 20 first to Gamecocks Club members and USC staff -- 11 days before the public can buy single-game seats.
Boosters and school staff also get first crack at single-game tickets to the remaining six home contests on Aug. 28 -- three days before the public.
The school also continues to offer season tickets for $320 plus annual seat-license fees and Gamecock Club dues.
USC said last month that season-ticket sales were ahead of last year's pace after a school record 11-win campaign. but they still lag pre-2009 numbers. Three years ago, the school started charging fees ranging from $55 to $395 per seat to pay for athletics projects.
The mini-plans do not offer discounts on the face-value of tickets, but they give the public a shot at popular games, such as SEC foes Tennessee and newcomer Missouri, a week before single-games seats go on sale.
The Garnet mini-plan costs $155 for tickets to the UAB (Sept. 15), Missouri (Sept. 22) and Tennessee (Oct. 27) games. The Black mini-plan costs $130 for tickets to the East Carolina (Sept. 8), Arkansas (Nov. 10) and Wofford (Nov. 17) games.
