The excitement for college football is reaching a fever pitch with the season starting this weekend, but QueenBeeTickets.com is already looking ahead to the end of the season. The organization will be offering the following college bowl tickets for sale on Saturday: Russell Athletic Bowl tickets, Capital One Bowl tickets, Outback Bowl tickets and Allstate Sugar Bow. Each of these games will take place between Dec. 28 and Jan. 2 and will serve as a season-ending celebration for the participating teams. QueenBeeTickets.com invites college football fans to shop and compare their selection of discount football tickets.
Those holding Russell Athletic Bowl tickets will be heading to the Florida Citrus Bowl stadium in Orlando, Fla., on Dec. 28 for the 5:30 p.m. contest. Top teams from the Atlantic Coast and Big East Conferences will play in the game. The Russell Athletic Bowl was founded in 1990 and was played in Miami Gardens, Fla., from that year until 2000. The game was then moved 220 miles to the north.
A year ago, Florida State knocked off Notre Dame 18-14 in an exciting affair that was played in front of a sellout crowd of 68,305. The Seminoles rallied from a 14-3 fourth-quarter deficit by scoring two touchdowns and a field goal to win by four. The MVP of the game, FSU’s Rashad Greene, snatched what would become the game-winning touchdown pass to give the Seminoles a 15-14 fourth-quarter lead.
Fans with Capital One Bowl tickets will be able to watch the top non-BCS selections from the Big Ten and Southeastern Conferences play in one of the most prestigious non-BCS bowl games. These will normally be the second-place teams from those powerful conferences. The game will kick off at 1 p.m. on Jan. 1 and will also be played at the Florida Citrus Bowl in Orlando.
The possession of Florida Citrus Bowl tickets allows fans to enjoy this bowl game that has been played in Orlando on an annual basis since 1947 with one exception. The 1973 contest was played 110 miles to the north in Gainesville as the expected crowd for that game far surpassed the capacity of the Florida Citrus Bowl at the time. In the years following this move, the Florida Citrus Bowl increased its stadium capacity from 17,000 to 51,000 to ensure that fans with Florida Citrus Bowl tickets would remain able to attend the Capital One Bowl on an annual basis.
Following the 2011 college football regular season, South Carolina knocked off Nebraska in the Capital One Bowl by a 30-13 score. The game was close in the first half, and Nebraska was even about to take a lead into the locker room at halftime. However, game MVP Alshon Jeffery, a wide receiver with South Carolina, caught a 51-yard Hail Mary touchdown pass to end the half and give the Gamecocks a 16-13 lead. The team never looked back and dominated the second half.
The Outback Bowl will also be played at 1 p.m. on Jan. 1. This game will take place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla. Those holding college bowl tickets for this contest will also see a match-up of Big Ten and Southeastern Conference teams. This bowl will choose a Big Ten team after the Capital One Bowl has made its choice. Its SEC selection will most likely be of a team from the league’s Eastern Division.
This game was founded in 1986 and has been played in Tampa ever since. Last year’s version was exciting as Michigan State defeated Georgia 33-30 in three overtimes. The Spartans tied the score with an 85-yard drive that started with 1:55 left in the fourth quarter. The tying touchdown was scored with just 14 ticks remaining.
Allstate Sugar Bowl tickets are among the most coveted in college football. This prestigious game will kick off at 8:30 p.m. on Jan. 2. It is played at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans. The SEC champion will play in this game if it has not qualified for the BCS championship game. Those with Louisiana Superdome tickets are also able to watch New Orleans Saints games as the NFL team plays its home contests here.
The Allstate Sugar Bowl was first played on Jan. 1, 1935, and is tied with the Orange and Sun Bowls as the second-oldest bowl game in college football. It has been played in New Orleans every year with the exception of 2006 when it was moved to Atlanta due to the effects of Hurricane Katrina. Those holding Louisiana Superdome tickets to last year’s game witnessed Michigan outlast Virginia Tech 23-20 in overtime. Virginia Tech tied the score at 20 with just two seconds remaining in the fourth quarter.
