Sold Out Again In 2010!

Bowl Annonces That All Tickets Are Sold For Sixth Straight Year


LAS VEGAS - Make it six straight for the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas as the game is now technically a sellout, Executive Director Tina Kunzer-Murphy, announced Thursday.

The bowl, which will pit No. 10 Boise State vs. No. 19 Utah on Dec. 22 at 5 p.m. PT, sold out of its tickets for the public late this week for a sixth consecutive year. However, fans can still log on to www.idahotickets.com or www.utahtickets.com for information about any tickets still available for purchase from either school's allotment.

''Our tremendous matchup this year has been earning buzz across the college football world and we are ecstatic that for the sixth straight year we have sold all of our tickets,'' Kunzer-Murphy said. ''People in our community and fans of both Utah and Boise State have shown that they want to see this game and we can't wait for the festivities to begin when the teams arrive this weekend.''

The MAACO Bowl Las Vegas, which is owned and operated by ESPN Regional Television (ERT), will be televised nationally on ESPN HD. Last year, the 18th edition of the Las Vegas Bowl attracted 40,018 fans to Sam Boyd Stadium, which marked the game's fifth consecutive sellout as BYU defeated Oregon State 44-20.

Thanks to some temporary bleachers used in the North End Zone, the 2006 game between BYU and Oregon boasted what still stands as the largest crowd to ever see a team sporting event in the state of Nevada at 44,615.
