        Im trying to plan ahead and decide between going to the Pac Championship game or the Bowl game. 

        Does the school offer tickets for wheelchair accessible seats and how do they compare to ticketmaster or stub hub tickets? 

        Essentially where is the best place to buy tickets or packages?

        Pac championship seems pretty affordable. 

        Lookng at CFP, NY6 and Rose bowl tickets, they are pretty pricey. Do they change much in price as we get closer or through the school?

        In santa Clara you will be able to walk up to the stadium and pay practically nothing for the Ccg. 

        I am holding out for the Rose Bowl right now.

        I go to the bowl game every year and have attended several Pac12 Championship games (lots of Pac12 fan friends).  I have gotten to the point where I never purchase tickets to anything until I am walking up to the venue on stub hub when the “brokers” are unloading.  Tickets purchased from the University are the worst value for your money.  

        Your situation seems highly unique and I am not sure you are going to get a ton of info off here.  Honestly contacting each venue individually may be your best bet when it comes to your personal ticket needs.  Not sure the “brokers” are buying up seats that come with that many strings attached.

          I’ve usually done the same thing.  Even the Sugar Bowl had people unloading tickets before the game for way below face value, but I’m worried the Rose Bowl would be different than most other bowl games and that it may be risky to wait.

        I want to do both, but that’s getting a little more than I can afford. I definitely want to do the Rose Bowl, but probably wouldn’t go to the Peach, Cotton (Alamo – possible).

        I’ve heard a few people complain about the Rose Bowl experience. They said the seating is tight, expensive and its difficult to get around in that stadium. That doesn’t sound like fun, but the setting and experience alone would be worth it.

        The Holiday bowl last year was a blast, despite the rain, cold and outcome. I agree with other posters don’t buy tickets from the University, you’re better off getting them on your own.

          I have the same thoughts about Utah @ Notre Dame in 2010*. The stadium sucks, seating was tight, outdated layout and it rained the whole time (and we lost) but everything outside of the game itself was absolutely amazing.

           

          If Utah is in the Rose bowl nothing is going to stop me from being there

            Utah didn’t play @ Notre Dame back in ’11.  That was the year we’d played @ Pittsburgh.  The Notre Dame game was 2010.

          The Rose Bowl sucks outside of the history it has.  The stadium is very old and outdated, the seats are tight and uncomfortable.  The concessions and bathrooms are inconvenient and it is a pain to get in and out of the stadium/parking.  With that said, I will be there if we make it.  No way I miss the 1st Utah Rose Bowl.  It’s a 10 hour drive or 2 hour(pretty cheap) flight, so I have to go support this team after the season they’ve had.  The Holiday Bowl sucked last year(mostly because of the non stop rain) without having Huntley/Moss, but this team deserves as much support as possible.

        Get them on your own at the last mintue when people holding unsold tix get desparate to sell them.   Exception might be the CFP game where there might be more demand.   Otherwise what I have found with bowl games is that the sponsors get blocks of tickets they give to customers, friends, relatives, etc.   Most of these people don’t have a direct interest in the game and will put them up on VividSeats, StubHub and/or SeatGeek to convert their perk into cash they can spend on whatever event or thing they want.   I lean toward SeatGeek and buy in the last 48 hours, works pretty well for my local university’s football and basketball games.  I went to the Holiday Bowl because my brother got a block of four cheap at church silent auction (probably donated by a sponsor-connected person).

          Do you think this will be the case with the Rose Bowl as well?  I’m worried it may be an exception to this rule.

          Utah has Rose Bowl seats between the 40-s $235@. I pre ordered 6.
          If Utes go to Rose Bowl, I-15 will be a parking lot for a week, and you won’t be scalping scalpers for cheap seats.
