Alamo Bowl ticket update

The University of Washington reported today that it has “distributed over 8,600 of our 9,500 Valero Alamo Bowl ticket allotment.”

Schools in all bowl games are required to sell a specific allotment of tickets, and as the Pac-12 representative, Washington’s requirement is 9,500.

UW officials said the figure of tickets distributed so far “includes 1,500 tickets, which the department purchases for the use of the band, player guests and departmental needs.”

Obviously, that means there are still some tickets left. UW officials say fans can get tickets by calling (206) 543-2200.

UW sold out its allotment of 11,000 tickets last year to the Holiday Bowl in San Diego, but goes without saying that was an easier and less expensive trip for Husky fans. UW’s sales to date are far above the Pac-12 representative in the Alamo Bowl last year when Arizona sold less than 4,000 tickets.

Baylor was reported earlier to have “exhausted” its 12,500 allotment, and overall ticket sales for the game will be among the best in the history of the bowl, due in part to having a team that is close and features the Heisman Trophy winner in Robert Griffin III.

The Alamo Bowl announced earlier today it is adding some obstructed view seating to meet high demand.
