My family and I are headed to Oxford Mississippi to watch ISU play Ole Miss on December 16. I’d like to sit behind ISU‘s bench. And I remember reading on here one time that coach yak set that up for somebody. What would you recommend now that I would do? I called the ole miss ticket office and I’ve already purchased the tickets, and I asked the sales representative if they can put us behind Illinois states bench and she said I’ll make a note of it. But I’m just not so sure that’s gonna work. Any thoughts?

I think the only way to get those seats RIGHT behind the bench is to go through ISU ticket office. Call them. Tell them you bought through Ole Miss and requested seats behind the ISU bench. They MAY be able to help. Usually those seats are for the big donors that's travel in the team flight etc...

Yes. Coach yak set me up in Philly the year before last at St. Joe's. I was directly behind the bench. I would reach out to the coaching staff first and then the Redbird ticket office.

I haven't heard back from anyone yet. They (OLE MISS) are going to "make a note of it" and we will see. Not very hopeful on that. The ISU ticket office said the folks that sit behind the bench for road games are from the players allotment of tickets. But Im assuming donors as well.
