i heard they put your name on the tickets and you needed your student ID w/ you. Not sure about guest / spouse tickets though.
Yes, and they scan the tickets. At least they were trying to implement it last year, but it wasn't all student tickets. Supposedly, they've worked out the kinks and will be scanning all student tickets this year.
Is it stricktly verboten to re-sell tickets? Like, could y'all's friends buy my A&M and Ohio tickets since it's not remotely important to me to go to those big games?
It hasn't been in the past, but the print at home system would seem to negate the possibility of doing that for your personal student tickets. However, spouse tickets are not print at home, as far as I know, you have to pick them up at the ticket office prior to the season. Those should be possible to sell.
Guest tickets were the same way in the past, but I hear tell that they will be print at home as well. I'm not sure how that is going to work.
