The Buffalo Sabres and First Niagara have partnered to offer students the chance to buy tickets to select Sabres games this season for just $20.

The "Student Surge" promotion will have a limited number of tickets up for sale. Tickets in First Niagara Center's 300 Level II tickets regularly priced at $40 will be available for $20 each.

"Ever since Terry (Pegula) bought the Sabres, we have received many suggestions from students asking us to create a 'student rush' type of ticket," Sabres' President Ted Black said in a statement.

He said at least 200 tickets to five different Sabres' games this season will be available.

A valid student I.D. will be needed to purchase tickets, starting with the game against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday, Nov. 16 at 7:30 p.m.
