Sugar Bowl tickets?

By: 10 December 2010 One Comment

What Arkansas Razorbacks fans worth his salt wouldn’t want to see the Hogs take on Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 4?

Indeed, that trip to the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans is easy for most Arkansans, so it’s mighty tempting to go see Arkansas in its first Bowl Championship Series (BCS).

Of course, finding tickets is another matter entirely. Kevin Trainor, associated athletic director of public relations at the University of Arkansas, said fans hoping to get some tickets through the college are out of luck. He said the UA received 24,000 orders in advance for the tickets and received only 17,500. Yes, those things were sold before the college even had any to sell.

Speaking of sold out, Sugar Bowl officials announced they are out of tickets, too, and recommend TicketsNow as a trustworthy source for fans wanting to attend the Sugar Bowl. Meanwhile, some Razorbacks fans have told First Arkansas News that StubHub is a good source for people hunting for tickets.

Here’s a word of advice, however — grab those suckers soon because they’re going fast.
