BROOKINGS, S.D. – Single-match tickets for South Dakota State’s 2017-18 wrestling season will go on sale Monday (Oct. 16) through the Jackrabbit Ticket Office.
Ticket orders for eight home dates will be processed starting at 9 a.m., either in person, online at JackrabbitTickets.com or over the phone by calling (605) 688-5422. This season’s home schedule kicks off Nov. 5 with the season-opening Warren Williamson/Daktronics Open, with the home dual slate getting underway Nov. 17, when the Jackrabbits host Minnesota.
SDSU will host six other duals, including nonconference matches against Central Michigan (Dec. 8) and Oregon State (Jan. 5). In Big 12 Conference competition, the Jackrabbits are slated to host Wyoming (Jan. 18), Northern Iowa (Jan. 21), Iowa State (Feb. 4) and North Dakota State (Feb. 16).
