Disappointing news for the folks who were counting on standing-room only tickets for this year’s Hyundai Sun Bowl.
Organizers said today that no such tickets would be available this year, citing fire codes.
Standing-room only tickets previously have been sold for Sun Bowl Stadium — in 2008 for UTEP’s regular-season matchup against Texas and for last year’s Brut Sun Bowl featuring Oklahoma and Stanford.
The decision comes after Sun Bowl officials said they would attempt to make a limited number of tickets available after the matchup between Notre Dame and Miami sold out in record time.
The game will be televised nationally on CBS.
