COLUMBIA — Missouri fans on Monday awaited the much-anticipated sale of tickets to the 2014 AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic.
MU was allotted 13,500 tickets, which are now sold out on the MU athletics department's website, according to MU athletics spokesman Chad Moller. Tickets are still available on resale sites, such as VividSeats.com.
Moller said fewer than 1,000 tickets became available to the public at noon Monday and sold out in less than 10 minutes. The remaining tickets were reserved for Tiger Scholarship Fund donors and season-ticket holders who made pre-sale orders, including students.
"It's great to see the support from the fans," Moller said.
The athletics department began planning for ticket sales in November when it was announced that Missouri was headed to a bowl game. Moller said the plan was to sell as many tickets to the Tiger Scholarship Fund donors and season-ticket holders as possible and sell the remaining ones to the public.
Missouri was originally allotted 12,500 tickets but received an additional 1,000 from Cotton Bowl officials Sunday night.
