Cotton Bowl Countdown: Still looking for a ticket? You’re in luck. Prices going down

Kansas State football fans still on the hunt for tickets to the 2012 Cotton Bowl are in luck.

Ticket prices are going down.

Unlike a few weeks ago, when no ticket could be found on the secondary market for less than $209 and the most expensive suite was going for $56,846, tickets are now available for as low as $139 and the top suite is down to $27,897.

By no means cheap, but much more affordable.

Anyone who was frustrated by ticket prices when the sold out Cotton Bowl matchup was announced needs to give websites like StubHub, TicketCity and the Cotton Bowl’s official ticket exchange another try.

Below is a rundown of the cheaper tickets that can now be found on those three sites:

StubHub
Standing Room Only: From $141
Upper Reserved: From $150
300 Section: From $195
200 Section: From $190
100 Section: From $208

TicketCity
Standing Room Only: From $139
Upper Reserved: From $139
300 Section: From $164
200 Section: From $200
100 Section: From $208

Cotton Bowl Ticket Exchange
Upper Reserved: From $150
300 Section: From $190
200 Section: From $195
100 Section: From $235

And who knows? Ticket prices may continue to fall as Jan. 6 approaches. Hopefully this softer secondary market will allow more real fans entrance to the Cotton Bowl.

Editor’s Note: On Jan. 6, the Kansas State football team will face Arkansas in the Cotton Bowl. With that in mind, I began counting down to the big game in Cowboys Stadium on Dec. 6 by attempting to write 31 blog posts in 31 days. I use the word “attempting” because I can only think of so many blog ideas at the moment. I’m confident that I can go 31 for 31, but your help is appreciated. Feel free to send a blog idea (or two) my way at krobinett@wichitaeagle.com.
