NCAA Bowl Game Tickets Entering Peak Season
With the NCAA College Football Bowl Game matchups announcement today, SelectATicket.com is braced for the busiest time of the season for College Football tickets
Riverdale, New Jersey (SelectATicket.com) December 05, 2010 - The annual NCAA College Bowl Game matchups will be announced tonight and that means that College Football Bowl tickets will begin selling at a hurried pace, according to SelectATicket.com. Speculation on the matchups always reaches a fever pitch in the final week leading up to Selection Sunday when the bowl game participants are announced. Once the announcements are made, fans flock to the internet to purchase their tickets.
Entering Selection Sunday, the top five BCS teams are Auburn, Oregon, Texas Christian University, Stanford and Wisconsin. With games on Saturday for both Auburn and Oregon, the participants in the BCS Championship Game would not be officially announced until Sunday night. The BCS title game is played between the teams ranked numbers one and two in the BCS Standings. Once that matchup is determined, the remaining BCS Bowls select their participants in the following order: Rose Bowl, Sugar Bowl, Orange Bowl and finally the Fiesta Bowl. Additionally, the champions of the Atlantic Coast, Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-10, and Southeastern conferences have automatic berths in one of the participating bowls. As a result, if any those teams are not ranked one or two, they must be chosen for a remaining bowl game.
Part of the excitement leading up to bowl selections is guessing what teams will play where.
The most common potential bowl matchup predictions prior to Saturday's games were as follows:
- BCS Championship Game: Oregon vs Auburn
- Sugar Bowl: Arkansas vs Ohio State
- Fiesta Bowl: Oklahoma vs Stanford
- Orange Bowl: Virginia Tech vs UConn
- Rose Bowl: Wisconsin vs TCU
Traditionally, BCS National Championship Game tickets are the most sought after tickets by college football fans. Matching the top-seeded teams in the BCS standings, it is a single game playoff to determine the national college football champions. Every fan in the country has interest in this game if their favorite school is participating or not.
"Whether it is a large school like Oklahoma or a smaller football program like UConn, playing in a bowl is a great reward for the fans. Players' parents, alumni and current students do not need a Top 10 team to have an enjoyable and memorable time cheering for their school in a bowl game, it is just an honor for their team to be chosen," says Tara Rau, Vice President at SelectATicket.
