Utah-BYU is the hottest ticket of the bowl season
The Holy War bowl game between Utah and BYU in Las Vegas figures to be one of the best bowl games of the entire season.
The ticket prices for this game between the two bitter rivals is off the charts. As ESPN's Darren Rovell points out, relative to face value a ticket to the Las Vegas Bowl is the most prized bowl ticket.
Average prices for tickets to the game are through the roof. In fact, ticket prices on average are higher than the two College Football Playoff semifinal games.
The Las Vegas Bowl has suddenly become the hottest ticket in town.
Las Vegas Bowl with BYU & Utah relative to face value is hottest bowl ticket. Horrible for local economy given demographic of fan bases.
