Chick-fil-A Bowl ticket sales low
BATON ROUGE - LSU fans sitting Monday's Chick-fil-A game out have caused ticket sales to suffer.
The bowl sold about 35,000 tickets to local and regional buyers. The remaining tickets were purchased by LSU and Clemson and the schools continue to sell those tickets to their fans.
LSU held about 16,000 of those tickets. Only 10,000 of those tickets have been sold.
LSU trip organizer Jim Dumigan says this is one of his smallest games of the year. Only 20 people will be joining him on his organized trip to Atlanta.
"This one is really not one that has the fan interest," said Dumigan."They just didn't turn out in droves."
Owner of Purple & Gold, Black & Gold Sara Sanders says customers have been buying LSU gear for the game, but she only ordered a third of her game-day shirts.
"I just think everybody wanted a bigger bowl," said Sanders.
