Central Michigan Football: Chips Fired Up for Quick Lane Bowl


The Central Michigan Chippewas have sold out the school’s allotment of tickets for the second annual Quick Lane Bowl in Detroit.

The second annual Quick Lane Bowl will kick off on Monday, December 28 at 5:00 pm (TV: ESPN2), and, from the sound of things, the Central Michigan community is getting geared up to have a relative home game.

Tickets remain available through QuickLaneBowl.com, but none remain in the Central Michigan dedicated sections. The Minnesota Golden Gophers are still offering seats in their sections on their official athletics website.

Journalistic investigation by members of this weblog has revealed the allotment to be 3,500 tickets — a relative drop in the bucket for the size of the stadium — but there’s evidence that the Chippewas have been selling out many more tickets on “their” side of the field. 

A look at the Ford Field seating chart shows section 140 to be in the corner and 125 to be only two sections off from center. An indication that perhaps CMU fans have purchased up the majority of the tickets on their team’s side of the field.

If you’re looking to purchase tickets to the game, consider buying them through the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) website. The Quick Lane Bowl is supporting the DAV by raising funds and awareness through the bowl game festivities. They’ll donate $10 to the DAV for every ticket sold through helpkeepthepromise.org.
