    A&M and OU games nearing sell out

    Just got off the phone with the ticket office and they said there's only a few hundred left for both games combined! It would be great if we could sell out the rest of the weekend games!

    Current count for A&M is about 260, 170 for OU. Crazy.

    600ish for tonight still it looks like, though some of those will go with walkup sales. 8pm start probably doesnt help.

    I'm happy about it as well but it's mostly because they're weekend games. When we have this kind of momentum going people will come watch anyone they can.

    I prefer the 8:00 starts because I can still go home and have dinner with my family before the game. Then when I get home my wife is already in bed so I can relax and catch the highlights in peace.

    I get it, I think, and totally agree about ATM (and Mizzou, Neb and Colo), but not sure about OU.

    It sounded better if I included both.

    "Hilton Magic" is on its way back!

    Wish I live closer, so I can go back and go to every game!

    Week night game too. I'm sure I'm not the only one who would have entertained the idea of coming if this was on Saturday, but just can't make that drive on a weeknight.

    My first year out of college I did the Waterloo-to Ames-back to Waterloo drive in one night for a Thursday football game. Still made it in for work on Friday morning a 7:30am. It's doable, but it's not ideal.

    My wife and I were trying to get 6 tickets for the OU game and could barely find anything that was together. We ended up switching and getting tickets to the Baylor game in a group but and way up and it still wasn't easy to get. That game is a month away!!
