I was absolutely shocked when I received an  emailed a solicitation and saw the prices being charged for packages for the Capital One Bowl.  And the price discrepancy gets worse when the cost of similar tickets, or extra people are added in.   So what’s a fan to do?  I would say save the money, or take a friend, it’ll still cost you less, and you’ll have some of the best seats in the house.  If you want to help the school, team or alumni association, use your savings to make a donation!

We’ll have a comparison of packages in Tampa and Dallas in the next few days.

An important disclosure – I am the owner of BOWLJET, llc, and I put this together because I  at the price.  So to be fair, I used the information right from the supplier website, and did not cherry pick anything to show a worst-case situation.  If you want to check the website addresses, just send me a note or give me a call at 414-324-7225.  Dave
