UConn absorbed nearly $3 million in unsold Bowl Championship Series tickets
Mac Cerullo, of The Daily Campus, reports that the "University of Connecticut sold fewer tickets to the 2011 Fiesta Bowl than any other public school that has appeared in the Bowl Championship Series over the past three years, according to bowl documents obtained."
Cerullo found that the school ended up absorbing nearly $3 million in unsold tickets. Analyzing data from the past three years, it was discovered "the only other school that absorbed more that $1 million in ticket sales during that period was West Virginia at the 2012 Orange Bowl. The Mountaineers absorbed $1.1 million"
