Cotton Bowl Tix as Valuable as Pocket Lint
Psssst. Hey, buddy, wanna buy some watches? No? OK then, how about a sweet deal on some Cotton Bowl tickets? I know, I know -- Nebraska vs. Auburn doesn't exactly hit close to home. But that's the point. That's why this year's Cotton Bowl has become a buyer's market. As in, $90 face value tickets are selling for as little as $40.
"It's one of the worst Cotton Bowl markets I can remember," says Scott Baima, who runs Dallas-based Texas Tickets and has been in the market for 25 years. "It's no fun getting half the value, but that's what's happening. On the secondary market there's just nothing."
Nebraska lost to OU in the Big 12 title game, and Auburn lost to Georgia late in the season, so neither team arrives with much momentum, pizzazz or happy-camper fans. Oh, and the 10:30 a.m. kickoff probably isn't helping interest. I'll be at the game, me and my bowl of Tylenol cereal. --Richie Whitt
