LSU taking orders nationwaide for bowl games

In anticipation of a possible berth in a BCS bowl game, LSU is taking applications from its fans and alumni from across the country for tickets to the Rose Bowl and Orange Bowl, athletic director Skip Bertman said Tuesday.

In pre-sales to football season ticket holders, LSU has already sold over 15,000 tickets to each of the Rose and Orange Bowls.


LSU is now taking new applications online at and by phone at (225) 578-2184.  Fans can also place orders for the Capital One Bowl, another possible post-season destination for the Tigers.


"In response especially to our fans and alumni from the western part of the country who have expressed an interest in the Rose Bowl, we are taking orders immediately for tickets to our potential BCS bowls," Bertman said.  "Our fans travel in great numbers to bowl games, and these prestigious bowls present an even greater opportunity for LSU to show its nationwide appeal."


LSU football season ticket holders had until November 20 to place orders for post-season tickets based on the LSU Priority Point System, and those orders will take priority over the new applications now being taken. 


"As always, our season ticket holders have first opportunity to purchase tickets, just like they did at the Final Four and at the College World Series," Bertman said.  "Season ticket holders will always get the first and the best seats available."


The LSU Athletic Department is working in cooperation with the LSU Alumni Association and the Tiger Athletic Foundation to reach fans and alumni across the country with the opportunity to apply for tickets.


Any person can apply for tickets to the Rose, Orange or Capital One bowls online at or by calling the LSU Athletic Ticket Office at (225) 578-2184.  Payment may be made by Visa, MasterCard or American Express.  Credit cards will be charged only when it is determined the bowl game in which LSU will play.


Tickets to the Rose Bowl, which will be played January 1 in Pasadena, Calif., are $135 each.  Tickets to the Orange Bowl, to be played January 2 in Miami, Fla., are $125 each.  Tickets to the Capital One Bowl, to be played January 1 in Orlando, Fla., are $75 each.


There will be no initial limits placed on how many tickets can be ordered, but fans are advised that limitations will be put in place if the demand for tickets exceeds the supply available to LSU for any games.
