The University of Michigan athletic director is slashing student ticket prices for next fall’s football season.

U of M students were in near revolt earlier this fall, not only because of the school’s struggling football team, but also the higher prices they had to pay to watch a game at the Big House.   

The athletic department has agreed to slash prices for next season.  

The price for a student ticket package for all seven home games next fall will cost a third less than this year. The school’s also working on reduced pricing for students with financial need.

"This new pricing is the result of positive dialogue between our students and the athletic department," says U-M Athletic Director Dave Brandon. “This price adjustment is another example of our commitment to continue building a stronger connection with our students and the university community."
