Finding a ticket to the Boise State vs. La Salle game in Dayton, Ohio is a piece of cake, even though there are only 200 set aside for Bronco Nation. Getting there is a totally different story, but for die-hard Bronco fans, they discovered booking a room Monday, was a whole lot easier than it was Sunday night.
If you're thinking of following the Broncos to Ohio for the La Salle game, then you better book your flight to Dayton quick.
“I'm excited Boise State has earned their way into this level of play, and I’m even doubly excited, they've got a good chance of moving on,” said Bob Harmon, owner of Harmon Travel.
“There's some challenges, it's obviously very short notice, people gotta be ready to leave Wednesday morning for a game Wednesday night,” said Harmon.
If you do get a flight you'll probably want a room. The good news is, on Sunday rooms in Dayton were selling for up to 700 bucks. Today, there are more rooms available than there were yesterday.
“When the announcement came out, several hotels were already booked up and then the teams got slotted into different places and cancelations took place. As of today, (Monday), we're holding rooms at the Crown Plaza in Dayton,” said Harmon.
Getting a ticket to the La Salle game is not a problem.
“Tickets are on sale today at broncosports dot com,” said Anita Guerricabeitia, Assistant Athletic Director of Ticket Operations.
For now sales are pretty slow, since it is kind of tough to get to Dayton the same day as game day.
But the optimist will want to look at this scenario; if BSU wins there will be 550 tickets to the big dance in Kansas City, Missouri.
“If the broncos win and you're a season ticket holder online that night, we will be for sale for the next round in Kansas City,” said Guerricabeitia.
They'll go on sale to season ticket holders first and then to the public. If BSU wins and heads west to K.C., those tickets will be in very high demand because their next opponent would be Kansas State, virtually making round two, a home game for the Wildcats.
