BCS National Championship, Rose Bowl and Gator Bowl Are Hottest College Bowl Tickets

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - December 15, 2009) - FanSnap®, the ticket search engine for fans, today announced college bowl tickets availability for the Top 25 Bowls. Storylines abound for the fast-approaching bowl season. The BCS National Championship Game is the hottest ticket this year. The Alabama-Texas matchup will be the first meeting in more than 30 years for two of the most storied programs in college football. The Crimson Tide boasts Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram in the backfield. Longhorn QB Colt McCoy came in a close third in Heisman voting.

Rose Bowl tickets are the second hottest ticket this bowl season. Oregon fans dominate ticket searches 3:1 over fans searching from Ohio. Look for lots of green in Pasadena.

The Gator Bowl isn't a BCS bowl, but still ranks as the #3 most searched game. The Gator Bowl will be Bobby Bowden's curtain call as the Seminoles take on the Mountaineers in the last game of Bowden's 34-year run at FSU.
