K-State Vs Arkansas In The Cotton Bowl
It was announced last night that K-State will play Arkansas in the Cotton Bowl. It’s now held at Cowboys Stadium aka “Jerry World”. It will air on Fox on January 6th and its the only game on that night so it should be seen by a lot of people. In the latest BCS poll K-State is #8 and Arkansas are #6. K-State had a decent chance of getting a BCS bowl but the Sugar Bowl picked Virginia Tech instead. Like the Cats the Razorbacks finished the year 10-2. With their two losses being to #1 LSU and #2 Alabama. We had one common opponent in Texas A&M they beat them 42-38 and of course we won in the 4 overtime thriller 53-50. Ticket info is below.
K-State’s 2012 AT&T Cotton Bowl allotment of 12,500 tickets has been sold out through pre-orders. Ticket locations for pre-orders will be assigned in order of the K-State Athletics Priority Point System and follow post-season priority limits. Ticket shipments are expected to be mailed by priority delivery at least two weeks prior to the game. Fans who did not pre-order tickets who wish to attend the Cotton Bowl should purchase tickets through the official ticket exchange on the AT&T Cotton Bowl website at www.attcottonbowl.com.
A student ticket allotment of 2,500 tickets is available with 500 reserved seats priced at $125 each and 2,000 standing room end-zone Spirit Passes at $50 each. These tickets will be available to current ICAT pass-holders beginning Wednesday, December 7 at 8:30 a.m. at the K-State Ticket Office located on the southwest corner of Bramlage Coliseum. In order to ensure fair access to tickets for K-State students and to maintain a students-only section, K-State Athletics consulted with the Student Governing Association to determine that students must bring their own student pass card and Wildcat ID and are limited to one ticket. Reserved ticket purchasers will be provided a voucher which, with a valid student ID, can be picked up at Cowboys Stadium on the day of the game. Any remaining reserved ticket vouchers will be made available to all K-State students on Thursday, December 8 at 8:30 a.m.
All unsold Spirit Passes will be made available to the public at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, December 12.
