Want a ticket to the Michigan-Alabama game in Texas? It just got tougher
All 25,000 tickets the University of Michigan had to sell for the Sept. 1 Michigan vs. Alabama game at Cowboys Stadium in Texas are gone, according to a release issued Tuesday morning.
All 25,000 to the Cowboys Classic were sold to donors and season ticket holders before a public sale could begin. The public sale was scheduled to start Feb. 29. Ticket prices ranged from $125 to $285.
“We have received unprecedented interest in tickets for the Cowboys Classic game with Alabama,” Michigan's chief marketing officer Hunter Lochmann said in the release. “The demand is on par or greater than our athletic department has ever seen.”
The university said it may receive standing-room only tickets to sell in April, and those would be offered first to Victors Clubs members, then Michigan football season ticket holders and then the general public.
The Michigan-Alabama matchup is the fourth Cowboys Classic. LSU beat Oregon, 40-27, in front of a crowd of 87,711, in the 2011 edition.
