    How hard will it be? Seems like there are a ton of cheap tickets available for this game. Theoretically, that means I should be able to get tickets cheap outside the stadium on game day, right?

    Judging by the number of cheap and FREE tix offered on Swap Meet, I'd say you might hold out for FREE tix outside the gates Monday night. Enjoy the game and all the hoopla for those of us back in Austin!

    Go - tixs will be the easiest part of the trip.

    Almost any game on TV where both teams have to travel to the site will provide ample supplies of easy to get, cheap tickets at the gate. The 2005 Rose Bowl is an example.
    Now, the 2006 Rose Bowl was a completely different matter, but that was an exception to the rule. Of course, the game was not only the national championship game, but on home turf for USC, which could have sold out the stadium by itself.

    Agreed. Very cheap or possibly free tickets shouldn't be a problem. I would probably make the trip myself if it weren't on a freaking Monday right after the holidays.

    Any ideas where the best place to find tickets on the stadium grounds might be? HF tailgate?

    When getting tickets from a scalper, any idea which side I should go for (ie where there will be more UT fans)?

    When walking from the outdoor mall to the stadium, there's a designated area to buy tickets on the right. At least there was before the Falcons/Cardinals game on Saturday.

    Glendale's finest were undercover around the area that the shuttle buses left off at the north side of the stadium, giving warnings out. However, as long as you confined your transactions to the designated fenced-in area, it was 100% a buyer's market. The scalping pro's with the stacks of tickets were about to have a stroke, there was nobody buying. I got a 50 yl, 3rd row upper deck ticket for $15, 30 minutes before kickoff, and soon realized that I overpaid.
