Aggie Football Fans Sign Wait List For Bowl Game Tickets

By  | 

Aggie Football fever continues to heat up with a Heisman Trophy candidate, and a 9 and 2 record heading into the Missouri game on Saturday.

And you can already get on a waiting list for bowl tickets, even though the bowl invitations haven't gone out yet.

News 3 spoke with a fan who's already signed up and learned what to do if you plan on ordering.

It doesn't take long to figure out Jarrod Hix has a pretty big passion in life.

Aggie Football.

"This is us in Tuscaloosa a couple weekends ago... This was the '07 Alamo Bowl," said Hix as he showed various pictures.

"The Bama Fans were extraordinarily nice," he said.

The A&M Former Student and Bryan resident has been to four Aggie Bowl Games and just signed a waiting list online for this year's bowl matchup which could be up to 13 different games.

"My wife and I discussed it yesterday and said just go ahead and put us for the full slate for whatever we end up going to. And depending on which one get picked for will make that ultimate decision," said Hix.

Season ticket holders and donors have first priority for access to tickets once the game is announced.

"I'd love if they went to the Fiesta that would just, that would be a great trip to go out to Glendale and to Arizona," said Hix.

So far more than 7,000 Aggie fans have expressed an interest in buying bowl game tickets. We'll find out where they'll be playing on Sunday, December, 2nd.

Texas A&M Senior Associate Athletics Director Jeff Schmahl says fans will have 24 hours to go ahead and accept or cancel an order once the bowl location is determined.

"It's just a $10 fee to sign up and if you don't get bowl tickets then you get that fee back. But that's just kind of a processing fee that we put down," said Schmahl

"Going to Tuscaloosa and getting to witness the Bama game first-hand, I mean this has been a very special season," said Hix.

A season first in the SEC and now potentially a great bowl bid too.

The deadline to get on the ticket request list is November 27th while orders after that will be filled by the order date.

Fans will only be charged for tickets to the bowl game A&M is selected to play in.
