Pinstripe Bowl: Tickets Sales Solid, WVU Mascot Cited For Not Wearing Orange

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

The big reason that the Syracuse Orange were picked to play in the Pinstripe bowl instead of the Pittsburgh Panthers is that the Orange are known commodity when it comes to ticket sales. Coupled with the rabid West Virginia Mountaineers fanbase and expectations were solid for attendance. It looks like those expectations will be met.

Ticket sales for the Pinstripe Bowl have been brisk, according to Matt Wells, West Virginia's assistant athletic director for marketing and sales, who said Monday only a few hundred were left to be purchased through the school.

According to bowl spokesman Jason Latimer, Syracuse has nearly sold all of its allotment as well.

The bowl game got 38,274 for the Syracuse-Kansas State match-up two years ago and 38,328 for last year's Rutgers-Iowa State game. Chances are good that this year's game will surpass both of them.

Syracuse still apparently has a few tickets left in their allotment so hurry if you haven't snagged them already. If you purchased tickets via the TNIAAM/SyracuseFan.com group, the $95 seats will be in 232A and the $50 seats will be in 236.

Meanwhile, you've heard all about the thing with the West Virginia mascot and his hunting troubles. However, his biggest transgression is summed up in the title of this article. It's about time.

Meanwhile, West Virginia fans are still trying to get fired up for the game and the petition to make the Schwartzwalder Trophy count is up to 960 signatures. At 1,000, I guess it actually gets sent.
