    Where are you all getting actual tickets? Through ISU, or through Alamo bowl? Stubhub? Been looking around, and want to find some decent seats, but with ISU, it looks like we will be stuck in the end zone.

    I bought through ISU knowing that my seats will suck.

    Get them from Iowa state if at all possible. It’s so important that we get credit for tickets sold. That’s a big reason why we got the Alamo.

    Go through Iowa state. Tickets aren’t in the best location, but for the same seats on ticketmaster, which is where it took me when I went through the Alamo Bowl, the same seats are more. Iowa state’s prices are face value and you sure won’t find that online anywhere. If you want good seats along the sidelines, get ready to open your wallet. Those tickets are pricey

    Screw that, get the best seats that you can afford no matter where they come from. If the schools' seats don't sell out then maybe the bowl will get the hint that they shouldn't give us dog crap seating locations.

    I don't even know how to buy through ISU. Don't you have to be a donor or something?

    When they see how many people we bring tickets through ISU won’t matter. I’m sure rent they track location too

    My problem is, I need five tickets and my level only secures four. So I get pushed back with the non donors and risk not getting any. Haven't decided what I will do yet.

    There are ways to track who is buying tickets other than outdated school numbers:

    I will continue to donate every year. But I hate not sitting where I want to. So I bought mine through Ticketmaster and upped my donation level because I felt bad.

    Find another person buying tickets in your club level that doesn’t need their allotment. Under special instructions request tickets next to each other. Tickets will be assigned based on the lower person’s position in Cyclone Club

    Got my tickets through the bowl package, but signed up in the first half an hour, so hopefully they will not suck too bad. Should have gone to the ISU site, but I am not a season ticket holder, or anything else, so probably wasn't going to do much better than way.

    we donate and bought through ISU last year. Our seats were nose bleeds at Memphis. Non donor friends waited until last minute, paid less, got much better seats. They will still know we travel well.

    Bought the exact seats I wanted through Stub Hub when I saw them at what I thought was a decent price. We will see what one of you pays for the seats next to us and find out if I got taken.

    Got mine on VividSeats below Face Value even after the fees. I ain't a donor so I am not taking the risk

    Trying to decide if it's worth it to go through the University knowing I'll be sitting by Iowa State fans or go third party and run the risk of sitting by some WSU fans.

    I went through ISU. As long as I don't have endzone view tickets (And I shouldn't since I didn't select that price option) I'll be satisfied.
