Duck Fiesta Bowl Tickets Sold Out
Dec. 12, 2001
EUGENE - The University of Oregon ticket office announced that its allotment of 18,000 tickets for the upcoming Tostitos Fiesta Bowl are now sold out.
Duck fans still trying to purchase any few remaining tickets can try calling the Fiesta Bowl Ticket office at 1-800-635-5748. All tickets for the January 1st game, set for a 1:30 p.m. local start in Sun Devil Stadium Tempe, Ariz., are on a reserved seat basis and cost $75, plus any handling fees. The game will also be broadcast live on ABC Sports.
The Duck ticket office also confirmed that all previous applicants for a previously-arranged Duck ticket-office lottery for bowl tickets are assured of their order of two or less tickets per order.
All bowl tickets bought through the Duck ticket office will be mailed via two-day shipping early next week, and should arrive no later than Friday, Dec. 21.
Oregon's 10th postseason bowl appearance in 13 seasons marks its first winter appearance in Arizona and matches the No. 2-ranked Ducks against the Big 12 Conference Champion, the No. 4-ranked University of Colorado.
The high demand for tickets in Oregon's initial allotment of 15,000 tickets earlier in December, led the athletic department to secure another 3,000 tickets that went on sale Monday, Dec. 10, and were nearly sold out after the first day. The theme resembled a regular season where home support for the Ducks at Autzen Stadium stood at an all-time high of 275,556, as the Ducks went 5-1 and upped its home win streak to a nationally-leading 23 games in October. Oregon's current AP ranking is its highest in school history and it also recorded its first back-to-back Pac-10 Conference championships.
