Bowl game tickets to go on sale Monday for students

Tickets for the Horned Frogs’ undetermined, upcoming BCS bowl game will soon be available for students to purchase.

Sean Conner, director of ticket sales, said students will be able to purchase tickets online at at 8 a.m. Monday.

Tickets will cost $150 for the Rose Bowl and $305 for the national championship, he said. Ticket rates were not determined by the university but by the hosts of the bowl games. No discount will be offered to students.

Conner said the earliest students could pick up their tickets in the Daniel-Meyer Ticket Office will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 11. After that, tickets will be available in the Daniel-Meyer Ticket Office weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Dec. 13 through Dec. 23. Students will be able to purchase three tickets per ID, and 10 IDs may be presented by one student, he said. Students also must pick up together if they want seats next to each other, Conner said. Lost tickets will not be replaced.

Frog Club members and season ticket-holders are already able to purchase tickets for the bowl game, he said. Tickets will be sold to the general public if they are still available by Dec. 13.

Conner said students purchased about 4,000 tickets for last year’s Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Ariz. He said he expected students to buy the same number for this year’s bowl game.

Anh Truong, a business administration graduate student, said he would not buy tickets to either bowl game because of costs associated with the experience. Truong said he thought the combination of hotel accommodations, flights and ticket prices would be too expensive, he said.

Truong said he planned on watching the game on television instead.

Senior business major Andrew Pulliam said he planned on going to the game even though he thought they were expensive.

“This is my last chance to be a TCU student to have a chance at such a huge game like that,” he said.

Pulliam said he planned on waiting in line to pick up tickets with his friends as early as midnight before tickets were available.
