Blogger Raises Money To Send 500 Underprivileged Children To Texas Bowl

DOWN AND UNDER? LSU Dir of Ticket Operations Brian Broussard said that the school has "sold 6,000 of its allotted 12,000 tickets" to the Outback Bowl against Iowa. Meanwhile, Iowa Dir of Ticket Operations Pam Finke said that the school has "sold more than 10,000 of its 11,500 allotment." She added that the school will "request more tickets if the demand is high enough." Broussard admitted that LSU's ticket sales "have been slower than expected." In Baton Rouge, Ross Dellenger notes the LSU athletic department and the Tiger Athletic Foundation are "covering ticket costs for students who attended at least three regular-season home games and registered by Sunday." The school also is "distributing a prize each day until Dec. 26 to a fan who bought tickets" (Baton Rouge ADVOCATE, 12/18).
