Still plenty of tickets left for Las Vegas Bowl

Stephen Dunn

With the Las Vegas Bowl set to kick off next Saturday, December 22, ticket sales have been surprisingly low for both Washington and Boise State. In particular, Washington has sold just under 4,000 tickets.

While Christmas in Las Vegas doesn't sound like a bad idea for a lot of people, it doesn't seem to have piqued the interest of Washington Huskies fans. With just 10 days left until the Huskies play Boise State in the MAACO Las Vegas Bowl, the school has sold just under 4,000 tickets for the game, according to the Seattle Times. Washington was given 11,000 tickets as their allotment for the bowl.

The game which will be played December 22nd, will feature the Huskies against the Boise State Broncos. Boise State will be making their third straight trip to the Las Vegas Bowl, and not surprisingly the school is having trouble selling tickets because of it. The Broncos have sold just 3,100 of their allotment, which is also 11,000 tickets as well.

Still, despite the slow ticket sales, it isn't all bad news for Washington which will be making their third straight bowl appearance.

While most schools normally have to pay for all unsold tickets, according to the Seattle Times article linked above, the Pac-12 Conference will help subsidize the school for half of their tickets. Meaning that once Washington sells 5,500, the conference will pay for any others which go unused.

Washington will take on Boise State next Saturday, December 22nd at 3:30 p.m. EST in Las Vegas.
