PULLMAN, Wash. -- - The second phase of Washington State University's 2003 bowl game ticket sales plan kicks off Wednesday, Nov. 19, at 8:00 a.m. Pacific Time, according to Pete Isakson, WSU's associate athletic director for external operations.
"We will begin taking orders from the general public Wednesday at 8:00 a.m. for bowl options that may involve the Cougars," Isakson said. The four bowl games under consideration are BCS games at the Rose Bowl and Fiesta Bowl, plus the Holiday Bowl and the Sun Bowl.
"Fans will be able to secure their order with a credit card and once the bowl announcements have been made their account will be billed for the tickets they order to the Cougars' bowl game," Isakson explained. "Fans can place orders for tickets to all of the possible bowl game options involving WSU, but obviously they will only be billed for the game where WSU plays."
"As an example, a fan can order four tickets to the Rose Bowl, two tickets to the Holiday Bowl, two to the Fiesta Bowl, and six to the Sun Bowl," Isakson said. "If we earn the right to play in the Rose Bowl, that fan will only be billed for the four Rose Bowl tickets they ordered. All other orders will be discarded."
Isakson said a confirming e-mail notice will be sent to each person placing and order within 48 hours of the order's placement. Orders requiring confirmation by mail will be sent out about the same time. The final bowl game pairings will be announced Dec. 7 and tickets will be sent out to home addresses Dec. 18, with arrive no later than Dec. 23, according to Isakson
"This is a great opportunity for fans to watch the Cougars play in a third consecutive bowl game," offered WSU Athletic Director Jim Sterk. "We have already received orders from Cougars who qualified under the Ticket Priority System and the second phase is to open up sales to the general public."
Fans who want to take advantage of the public sale can do so by phone or on-line: * 1-800-GO-COUGS * 1-800-325-SEAT (TicketsWest) * www.ticketswest.com
Isakson also urged Cougar fans who received the bowl order form earlier this month to continue to send the forms back to WSU if they still want to order tickets.
