DENTON, Texas - Beginning Thursday morning at 8 a.m., North Texas students will be able to buy tickets to the Heart of Dallas Bowl at a 66-percent discount off the tickets' face value.
North Texas will play in the Heart of Dallas Bowl on New Year's Day at the Cotton Bowl in Fair Park, in Dallas. Kickoff is 11 a.m.
Due to generous donations from North Texas alumni, tickets for the game (face value $75) are being sold to UNT students for just $25.
Student tickets will go on sale Thursday, Dec. 12, at 8 a.m. at the North Texas Athletic Ticket Office at Gate 2 of Apogee Stadium. Limit is two tickets per student, and a valid UNT student ID must be presented to purchase the discounted tickets.
UNT students will have two sections reserved at the Cotton Bowl, adjacent to the section occupied by the Green Brigade marching band. This is a limited allotment of tickets, and will remain on sale until sold out. The Ticket Office is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Bowl-game tickets also get North Texas students into a pre-game indoor tailgate at Fair Park, at a location adjacent to the Cotton Bowl. Students must present their ticket to enter the bowl-game tailgate and to receive coupons for two free breakfast tacos and drinks.
The Mean Green, which beat three bowl-bound teams this season on its way to its first bowl invitation in nine years, finished its first season in Conference USA with an 8-4 record. North Texas will face the UNLV Rebels from the Mountain West Conference in the Heart of Dallas Bowl.
