LSU to stop taking bowl tix requests

With Rose Bowl ticket requests topping 40,000, LSU will stop taking requests for its potential bowl destination at 2 p.m. today, director of ticket operations Brian Broussard announced.

"We have exceeded our ticket allotment for any bowl game that we can play in," Broussard said on Friday morning.

Broussard said LSU has received 21,000 ticket requests for the Orange Bowl and 17,500 for the Capital One Bowl.

Broussard said fans will start receiving email notification regarding their ticket requests beginning on Monday. Those season ticket holders, who requested bowl tickets prior to the Nov. 20 deadline, will be notified regarding the status of their request first, according to Broussard.

Broussard said once LSU learns of its bowl destination and the number of tickets it will receive, then those fans that made their requests this week will be notified by email as to the number of tickets they will be granted.

LSU will learn of its bowl destination at 7 p.m. on Sunday when the BCS Bowl Show is televised live on Fox.
