Vanderbilt sells initial ticket allotment to BBVA Compass Bowl
Dec. 13, 2013
Vanderbilt Athletics has sold through the initial allotment of 10,000 tickets to the BBVA Compass Bowl and will be working with bowl officials to secure additional seating in the Commodore ticket block, athletics officials announced Friday afternoon.
Fans will still be able to purchase tickets through the Vanderbilt Ticket Office to secure their seats for the Jan 4 bowl in Birmingham pitting the 8-4 Commodores and 8-4 Houston Cougars.
This marks the fourth consecutive bowl game that Vanderbilt has sold through the assigned ticket allotment. Those postseason appearances are the 2008 Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl, 2011 AutoZone Liberty Bowl, 2012 Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl and upcoming BBVA Compass Bowl.
“Commodore Nation has once again responded to our call to support Vanderbilt football,” Associate Athletic Director Steve Walsh said, “We are delighted that our fans have the opportunity to experience the upcoming BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham and our hope is that Commodore fans will continue to purchase tickets through the university so we can show the nation how well we travel.”
The Commodores are enjoying a postseason appearance for the third consecutive year, marking the first time in school history that Vanderbilt fans have experienced back-to-back-to-back bowl games.
Fans can continue to purchase tickets through the Vanderbilt Ticket Office this weekend online at Vanderbilt Bowl Central. On Monday, fans wanting to purchase by phone can call the Vanderbilt Ticket Office at 615-322-GOLD.
