Bowling in Miami


By Rick Horrow and Karla Swatek

December 7, 2012

The cost of traveling to a bowl game is expensive, even before having to buy a ticket. However, students at the two schools traveling from the Midwest to Miami for BCS games can look forward to a slightly less costly trip.

An anonymous Notre Dame donor gave the school an estimated $375,000 to cut in half the price of BCS championship game tickets for students. The school is giving 2,500 of its 17,000-ticket allotment to students, and has received more than 100,000 ticket requests from students and alumni.

Meanwhile, Northern Illinois is giving one free Orange Bowl ticket to students who go to Miami for the January 1 game against Florida State. The move isn’t a first for the school, which has provided free tickets to bowl games and MAC championships since at least 2008. The MAC may help subsidize NIU’s trip to Miami so the school doesn’t lose any money.

Ultimately, college sports are about the students. It’s nice to see these schools make an effort to ensure their students can enjoy the experience at a more reasonable price.
