The Clemson Athletic Ticket Office is currently selling tickets to the 2014 Discover Orange Bowl. Ticket prices range from $50 to $225, with a limited number of $50 tickets made available by the department in an effort to provide an economical option for fans wanting to support the Tigers against Ohio State.

Bowl tickets will be assigned to IPTAY members based on IPTAY priority points. General public tickets will be assigned based upon order date.

Additionally, the athletic department will provide a complimentary parking pass ($20 value) to any ticket order of four or more. Fans purchasing a minimum of four tickets will also receive two complimentary passes ($40 value) to the One Clemson Tailgate on game day in Miami. All ticket orders processed through the athletic department will have all processing or shipping costs waived.

Student Ticket Information

The Clemson Athletic Department is offering a discounted lower-level ticket to students for $50. Students may purchase up to two tickets at the reduced rate, and student tickets will go on sale Thursday, Dec. 12 at 8 a.m., in the Ticket Office at Memorial Stadium (next to Gate 9).

Tickets can be purchased with cash or credit card, and will be distributed on a first come, first served basis, so please purchase tickets with your friends to sit together. Athletic department officials are working with partners on possible reduced-cost travel options. More details will be available later this week.

I know for a fact that no matter how much money you give to IPTAY you do not get a good ticket to bowl games. I remember the Bowl game agiant Tenn all the big donors sat in the corner of the end zone. I sat next to the Executive Director of IPTAY during the game. You are better off donating $250 than $100,000 when it comes to tickets for bowl games. And if you want good seats in the stadium buy your ticket elsewhere. I have never figured the rationale as to why the schools playing in these bowl games don't get the best tickets for their fan base. Someone told me all the 50 yd line seats go to corporations that buy big blocks of tickets. That may be true to a degree but I don't think they buy up 10,000 or 20,000 good seats. Maybe they do I just don't believe it. Thinking back the tickets I had for the Gator Bowl against Va Tech weren't too bad. I think they were down on about the 20 yd line. Not in the end zone at least. I wonder where the $225 ticket gets you a seat? Just think a family of 4 can go for the low, special price of $900 plus expenses. What a deal!!!
