In recent years the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl has provided fans with some of the most dramatic and exciting games the BCS has ever seen; ie West Virginia upsetting Oklahoma, Oklahoma State topping Stanford in Overtime or the unforgettable game where Boise State pulled off a Hook & Ladder and a Statue of Liberty to beat Oklahoma in OT. This year the Fiesta Bowl features two teams who making their debut in the BCS, Baylor and the University of Central Florida (UCF).
Baylor has enjoyed newfound success since hiring Art Briles as head coach in 2008 going 29-9 over the last three season and even having a Heisman winner in Robert Griffin III over that span. Baylor was able to secure the Big 12 Championship by beating Texas 30-10 in the final game of the season to notch their school record 11th win of the season.
UCF on the other hand has been a huge surprise this season as no one expected them to have this kind of success winning the inaugural American Athletic Conference Championship. The biggest reason for UCF’s turnaround has been the emergence of quarterback Blake Bortles and his stellar play who has risen up the draft boards with all indications pointing to him being a high pick in this years NFL Draft.
Over the past four years Fiesta Bowl prices have averaged $212 per ticket with the highest coming last year at $296 when Oregon played Kansas State. This year prices are 17% lower than the four-year average and 41% lower than last year as they are presently going for an average of $176 with an unheard of Get-in of only $13. That will make this year’s Fiesta Bowl tickets the cheapest since 2011 when Oklahoma trounced UConn by a score of 48-20 with tickets averaging $145.
