Bowl allotment sellout first for UCLA since 2006

UCLA announced yesterday that it had sold its entire 11,000-ticket allotment for the Holiday Bowl, most of which went to season-ticket holders and Wooden Athletic Fund donors. Around 1,000 were assigned for students and their guests, and the first 650 had been discounted from $65 to $25 thanks to anonymous donors.

The athletic department said today it was the first time they’ve sold out a bowl allotment since 2006, when the Bruins went to the Emerald Bowl after beating USC, 13-9. That year, UCLA also requested an additional 1,000 tickets from Florida State’s allotment and sold those as well. The Seminoles won 44-27, but the victory was later vacated due to NCAA violations.

Holiday Bowl tickets are still available at Ticketmaster and Stubhub (lowest going for $59.99).

    I bought my tickets for the Holiday Bowl and sold my Alamo Bowl tickets once I found out where UCLA was heading.

    Too bad it is only a trip to San Diego. I was wishing for San Antonio.

    In any case, I’ll be rooting for our Bruins! Go Bruins! 8-Clap!
