LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Razorbacks are going to the Cotton Bowl
at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. Now the question is -- are you?
If you are going to the big game, you might want to get your tickets soon. Gina Martin of Little Rock Tours says 86 razorback fans pre-ordered tickets before they even knew which game the Hogs would play in.
“We're very surprised this year because we've actually had more pre-orders for this bowl game then we did last year for the Sugar Bowl," Martin said.
Martin thinks one reason for all the pre-orders this year is all of the too-late orders last year.
“When we sold out of the Sugar Bowl we still had hundreds of people calling for Sugar Bowl packages and we unfortunately had to turn them away."
So how much will it cost you to get to the cotton bow this year? Little Rock Tours offers different packages. Here's a popular one: about $400, including taxes, for a ticket to the game, round-trip transportation, and one-night lodging. Little Rock Tours expects those tickets will go fast. In fact, they're opening two hours early tomorrow just in case.
Martin said, "We didn't do this last year and we came in to about 100 voicemails on our message box."
