    Flight Prices

    Just wondering if the flight prices will rise or fall once the bowl is announced. I could see them rising due to greater demand, but they could also fall due to increased supply (and to get more people to go). What's the history on this?

    And quickly. Keep all your ticket shopping prices in open windows. By the time you jump back to the website with the better price, the price may have risen. I paid for that dearly for the Insight Bowl. Ticket prices jumped $100 by the time when I returned to that site. For a family of 4 that is a $400 jump! We went from a good price and packing bags to watching it in the den of Hawkeye friends who had the channel the game was on.

    Re: Flight Prices

    Why not book flights to DC, NYC, San Fran, Hawaii, or Dallas now....if you can cancel for no cost later.

    I've had good luck with this flight search, which is owned by google.

    I think Kayak may actually be powered by ITA
