Adam H. Beasley, Miami Herald: Florida International has sold only a few hundred tickets to the Little Caesars Bowl.
Daniel Lyght and Matt James, Fresno Bee: It's estimated that Fresno State sold about 250 tickets of its 3,000 allotment for the Humanitarian Bowl. The school gave 2,000 to charity.
Paul Doyle, Hartford Courant: Connecticut is likely to lose a lot of money on its trip to the Fiesta Bowl. As of Friday, the Huskies had sold only 4,500 tickets. The school is on the hook for 17,500.
Darren Rovell, CNBC: Want tickets for under face value? A company called ScoreBig gets its inventory from teams and — much like Priceline — allows you submit a price for a ticket. Plus, why it's time for schools to say no to ticket arrangements with bowl games.
Mike Hlas, Cedar Rapids Gazette: Why the attendance figure for the Insight Bowl could be inflated. Phoenix-area residents who buy tickets to the Bowl Championship Series title game also have to purchase tickets to the Fiesta and Insight bowls, which floods the market with cheap tickets for those games. Iowa, which is on the hook for 11,000 tickets for the Insight, expects to sell only 6,000.
Jeff Barker, Baltimore Sun: Ralph Friedgen has still not agreed to step down as Maryland coach.
Matt Jones, Northwest Arkansas Times: Big problem for the Sugar Bowl. Approximately 1,680 duplicate tickets have been printed for the game. Ticket barcodes will be scanned before entry to the Sugar Bowl, meaning that if a duplicate ticket is scanned before the original, the original ticket will not be honored.
