STATE COLLEGE, PA. (AP) - Penn State officials say no more tickets are available for a Thursday memorial service for the late football coach Joe Paterno.

The service will be held at Penn State’s 16,000-seat basketball arena. The school says there was “overwhelming demand” for tickets.

The tickets were distributed free of charge, but at least two have been posted for sale on eBay. By midday Tuesday, the top bid was more than $200.

Paterno was the winningest coach in major college football coach and died Sunday. That was just over two months after he was fired amid a child sex abuse scandal involving a former assistant coach.
