If being a Virginia Tech student didn't already have its advantages, add one more to the list: free tickets to football games.
The university's ticket office offers a couple options to students like discounted season tickets.
Upperclassmen can buy season tickets $220 less than regular price.
Another option, the lottery, allows all students to apply for a seat on the university's website, but only 6,000 students are chosen for each home game.
"If you're a freshman you can't buy season tickets you have to do the lottery because there's way more students that want to go to games then there are seats for the students. So that's just luck of the draw I guess. You could either go to all of the games that way or not get any tickets," said recent graduate Laura Stoss.
The ticket office sets aside 17,000 tickets for students.
Officials say the school offers more sporting event tickets to students than any other school in the nation.
But students looking for a ticket last minute will find another option not supported by the university.
Scalpers are everywhere on game day holding fistfuls of tickets for a potential buyer.
Under Virginia law scalpers are allowed to sell tickets for more than their face value.
Less than a dozen states have laws making the resale of tickets illegal.
One scalper tells NEWS7 the inside track for selling tickets.
"It sounds silly but buy as low as you can and sell as high as you can. And the strategy is you know finding as many tickets for as low as you can," said Mark Lee, a small business owner from Eastern Virginia.
Lee buys and sells tickets each home game.
The university ticket office warns buyers, especially students, scalpers will sell fake tickets.
If you can't find a ticket in the future, they suggest buying one from their website and avoiding scalpers altogether.
