Iowa Insight Bowl ticket sales sluggish


IOWA CITY(KWWL)--The University of Iowa has only sold a little more than half its allotted tickets for the December 28 Insight Bowl which means the Hawkeyes are going to have swallow the difference.

Iowa ticket manager Pam Finke said that she thought between 5,700 and 5,800 tickets had been sold through her office. By comparison 30,000 Hawkeye fans bought tickets to the Orange Bowl this past January.

Iowa and Missouri each were allotted 11,000 tickets for the game in Tempe, Arizona, and as with most bowl games, they will be required to pay for any tickets they cannot sell. The recent Hawkeye problems aside, Finke believes Iowa's 7-5 record and a three-game losing streak to finish the season were the larger factors in the less-than-brisk ticket sales.
