BATON ROUGE - LSU has sold out of its allotment of tickets to the 2011 AT&T Cotton Bowl, assistant athletic director for ticket operations Brian Broussard announced on Sunday night.
Broussard said the school was given an allotment of 12,500 tickets for the game and those requests were all scooped up by season ticket holders and students. Broussard said LSU had well over 15,000 ticket requests for the Cotton Bowl.
"We sold every ticket we had to this game and they went quick," Broussard said. "There is obviously a lot of excitement about going to play in the Cotton Bowl against Texas A&M."
Broussard said season ticket holders who requested tickets to the Cotton Bowl will receive an email on Monday notifying them of their order and how many tickets they have been granted for the game. Tickets are distributed based on the LSU Priority Point System.
LSU will be playing in the Cotton Bowl for the first time since the 2002 season when the Tigers dropped a 35-20 decision to Texas. It will be the first meeting between LSU and Texas A&M since 1995.
