    13,000+ Tickets Sold from ISU for Liberty Bowl

    Absolutely amazing showing from ISU fans! This is one of the top numbers in the entire bowl season behind only some of the big games and schools (and ahead of some others).

    @IASTATEAD 13,000 tickets sold for the Auto Zone Liberty Bowl! Students make up 2,042 of the ticket sales. Also, less than 400 tailgate tix left.

    I think it's funny how CW wrote an article suggesting the ISU traveling reputation was on the line. It's the complete opposite, we are showing that we are increasing our bowl support each year!

    Let's not forget there are those that buy tickets directly from the bowl game and not through ISU. Plus


    So if you figure lets say 15k ISU fans...maybe 7-9k Tulsa fans....5-10 casual fans...should be a pretty good showing!

    No way Tulsa brings 7-9k. No way. Maybe 3k.

    Reading comprehension fail. The Liberty Bowl took a chance on inviting Iowa State over a lower-tier team with a better record because Pollard convinced them our fans would snatch up tickets, and they have. If Jamie had done all that legwork and ISU only sold 3,000 tickets he'd have an enormous amount of egg on his face and other bowls in the future would be more wary of believing him.

    Watching the big-boy bowls always make me think about that. Of course, the well-known schools fill-up those stadiums, but honestly, I think ISU fans would take 20-25k to a BCS game. Possibly more.
