Hawkeye TaxSlayer Bowl ticket sales lagging

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Iowa's trip to the 2015 TaxSlayer Bowl may feel a bit like a road game.

As of Monday, less than half of Iowa's 8,000 ticket allotment had been spoken for.

Pam Finke, Iowa's Director of Ticket Operations, says that 4,300 tickets of that allotment still remain.

Tennessee, Iowa's opponent in the Jan. 2 game, sold all of its 8,000 tickets by the middle of the last week. The Volunteer fans, however, are a bit bowl hungry after missing the post-season the past 3 seasons.

Iowa has played in a bowl game 5 of the past 6 years. The Iowa ticket office sold 10,800 tickets to last year's Outback Bowl versus LSU.

Finke says fans interested in purchasing tickets through Iowa can do so by calling the ticket office at 1-800-GO-HAWKS between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Iowa and Tennessee kick-off at 2:30 p.m. on Jan. 2 in Jacksonville, Florida.
