Outback Bowl Sold Out Again!December 07, 2006
Tampa, FL - The January 2007 Outback Bowl featuring the 17th ranked University of Tennessee Volunteers and the Penn State Nittany Lions is officially a sell-out. Outback Bowl officials say no more tickets are available for the New Year=s Day bowl game outside of the ticket allotments requested by and sent to each school. It is the sixth sellout in the past seven years for the bowl.
"As expected the response by the Penn State and Tennessee fans has been outstanding, " notes Outback Bowl President / CEO Jim McVay. "This is a tremendous match-up and being sold out this early just adds to the electricity around this game."
The schools are still distributing their allotment of tickets to their season ticket holders, alumni, boosters and students, but have indicated they will use all the tickets the have.
The Outback Bowl will be televised internationally on ESPN TV in HD and can be heard nationally on ESPN Radio and in the Tampa Bay market on 620 WDAE "The Sports Animal.” For information on the Outback Bowl, events, attractions and hotels in the Tampa Bay area go to the bowl's web site at www.outbackbowl.com.
