LSU selling tickets to Rose, Orange Bowls
BATON ROUGE, La. -- In anticipation of a possible berth in a BCS bowl game, LSU is taking applications from across the country for tickets to the Rose Bowl and Orange Bowl, athletic director Skip Bertman said Tuesday.
In pre-sales to football season ticket-holders, LSU has already sold over 15,000 tickets to each of the Rose and Orange Bowls.
"In response especially to our fans and alumni from the western part of the country who have expressed an interest in the Rose Bowl, we are taking orders immediately for tickets to our potential BCS bowls," Bertman said.
LSU football season ticket-holders had until Nov. 20 to place orders for postseason tickets based on the LSU Priority Point System, and those orders will take priority over the new applications now being taken.
Tickets to the Rose Bowl, which will be played Jan. 1 in Pasadena, Calif., are $135 each. Tickets to the Orange Bowl, to be played Jan. 2 in Miami, are $125 each. Tickets to the Capital One Bowl, to be played Jan. 1 in Orlando, Fla., are $75 each.
LSU said limitations will be put in place if the demand for tickets exceeds the supply available to LSU for any games.
