UW Bowl Ticket Sales Top 5,000

Laramie, WY – The Las Vegas Bowl is a little over a week away. And the University of Wyoming says it has sold about 5,000 tickets for the game so far. The school's Assistant Athletic Director for Media Relations, Tim Harkins, says fans started buying tickets immediately after the bowl bid was announced. When UW accepted the bid to go to Las Vegas, Head Coach Joe Glenn said he expected between eight and ten thousand fans there. Harkins says they are hopeful the 8,000 figure can be reached. Cowboy football players meanwhile continue their preparations for next Thursday's match-up against UCLA. The Cowboys are playing in their first bowl game in 11 years. UW hasn't had a bowl victory since 1966.
