OMAHA (AP) — Tickets for the Cotton Bowl are so cheap that a family of four could see the New Year’s Day game between Nebraska and Auburn in Dallas for less than $100.

The lowest price found Tuesday, on TicketLiquidator.com, was $10 for a ticket with a face value of $45. StubHub.com was selling a $90 face-value ticket for just $12.

“Ten dollars is as low as anyone would sell them for, so you could say the ticket has hit bottom with the Cotton Bowl,” TicketLiquidator CEO Don Vaccaro said.

TicketLiquidator, of Vernon, Conn., and San Francisco-based StubHub are among the online marketplaces that bring together ticket buyers and sellers. StubHub spokesman Sean Pate said the so-called “secondary market” gives a true indication of how hot — or cold — a ticket is.

Typically, fans go to the secondary market for hard-to-get tickets — and often pay significantly more than face value.

Buyers are getting the better end of the deal with the Cotton Bowl.

TicketsNow.com had $15 tickets, and several other online brokers had plenty listed for $20. Prime seats still go for several hundred dollars, but what surprises Pate is how little it costs for fans just to get into the stadium.

“Those tickets are dropping to unforeseen territory for a bowl game of that magnitude,” Pate said.

Neither Nebraska nor Auburn had sold out its allotment of 12,500 tickets, all priced at $90. All but about 3,500 of the 68,252 Cotton Bowl stadium seats have a face value of $90.

Omaha-based Ticket Express is getting 10 calls from people trying to sell Cotton Bowl tickets for every one trying to buy, president Chad Carr said.

Carr, like others in the travel and ticket business, say fans aren’t enamored with Dallas as a destination.

The 10:38 a.m. kickoff time also is difficult to overcome, Carr said, as is the unpredictable January weather in Dallas.

At StubHub, the average price for a Cotton Bowl ticket is $90, with $406 the highest paid so far. Pate said he expects the average to fall as the game nears.

The average price is 19th among the 32 bowls and ranks behind games such as the Texas Bowl ($100), Music City Bowl ($116), Emerald Bowl ($125) and Alamo Bowl ($138).

The Bowl Championship Series title game, Pate said, is fetching an average of $1,400.

Jason Randall, CEO of Austin-based Coast to Coast Tickets, said he’s not caught off-guard by the low Cotton Bowl ticket prices because the stadium is large and the matchup pits teams from distant places.

“When there’s not a championship on the line, it makes it a lot harder to justify the travel expense,” Randall said. “If (the University of Texas) were playing in the Cotton Bowl against an interesting opponent, maybe that would shake things up. As it is, this game isn’t that big a deal.”
I'm surprised that tickets are so cheap. It's not like it's San Jose State vs Idaho playing.

The match-up is a good one. The conditions are not.

A 10:30am kick-off the day after New Year's Eve?

No thanks.

That's a hangover for sure...if you're awake! Man I sure wish I would be able to go, I'd get a ticket in a heartbeat. That really should be a good game from Big X11 and SEC. The only thing is the time being early. I've been to a few cotton bowls where there are icesicles hanging from the top decks. This just doesn't make sense.

Yeah, but it's usually Texas, A&M, or another regional team playing there. Nebraska & Auburn? Outside of Nebraska and Auburn fans, no one wants to be there that early on New Year's Day.

My wife was at the chicken soup bowl. They literally had to get some water to pour on her brothers lip's to unfreeze them from his trombone. Icesicles indeed.
