WACO, Texas - While the Central Texas summer heat intensifies, Baylor football fans have responded to the school's 4th of July season ticket special, purchasing some 1,652 tickets to the Bears' seven-game 2011 home schedule since the offer began Tuesday morning.
The special ticket price of $101 was established based upon Waco's July 4th high temperature of 101 degrees, and the offer will remain available for fans to purchase until 5 p.m. on Sunday, July 10th. This price affords fans a discount of nearly 40 percent off Baylor's lowest season ticket price point with seating in sections A, B, C, I, J, K, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and Q at Floyd Casey Stadium.
"There is tremendous excitement for the 2011 season, thanks to the hard work of Coach Briles, his staff and student-athletes, and we have been thrilled with the response that we have received to this promotion," said Baylor Executive Associate Athletics Director/External Affairs Nick Joos.
"However, we still have good inventory available and I would encourage anyone who is thinking about buying season tickets for the 2011 season to take advantage of this special price point before the offer ends on Sunday afternoon."
The Baylor Ticket Office will be open Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., and while the office is closed over the weekend, fans will still be able to purchase tickets online. There is a limit of eight tickets per person.
Coach Art Briles' Bears, fresh off the program's first bowl appearance since 1994, open their seven-game 2011 home schedule Sept. 2 with a 7 p.m. nationally televised ESPN game against 2011 Rose Bowl champion TCU. BU will also play host to Stephen F. Austin (Sept. 17), Rice (Sept. 24, Parents' Weekend), Iowa State (Oct. 8), Missouri (Nov. 5, Homecoming), Oklahoma (Nov. 19) and Texas (Dec. 3) at Floyd Casey Stadium in 2011.
