CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - University of Illinois Division of Intercollegiate Athletics officials announced Monday that limited quantities of the popular $99 family-rate season tickets remain. One of the best values in college football at less than $15 per game, the family-rate tickets have sold out each year since they were first introduced for the 2007. Because of the high demand, seats in section 102, which was added as a family-rate section this year, already have sold out, leaving fewer than 2,000 horseshoe seats available as family-rate tickets.
