AUBURN, AL - Auburn University student and football fan, Graham Brooks, is hoping to land BCS tickets through the University lottery.
"I think that students will be notified Wednesday if you receive one and I know for sure if I get that lottery I'll be going," Brooks said.
Luckily, for him he already has a plan in place, and knows just where he'll stay.
"My dad actually got a hotel room from a guy. He was an Alabama fan and already a room and he was able to give it to my dad," Brooks said.
A ticket and a room that's just the beginning. If you plan on traveling to the game for two people expect to pay around $1,500 for a package deal to stay in Las Vegas. That does not include transportation from Las Vegas to Pasadena, but an option many fans are taking.
"Well there's very limited flights that are available, slim to none. And,
then to find hotels at this point there's none in Pasadena that we can
come up with. All of our hotels are going to be around the LA area," travel agent at Travel Travel in Auburn, Katie Bodden said.
At Travel Travel they're selling BCS packages anywhere from around $3,800 to around $1,700. Some include BCS tickets, accommodation, and airfare. They even have a package for those who want to drive to the game.
"If you have the time to go out then and make your way over there then yes, I think that's a great option to save money," Bodden said.
As for Brooks he's hopeful he'll get a ticket and say he'll probably be making the great adventure out to Pasadena either with his friends or dad.
Travel Travel said the best advice they can give is to go ahead and buy packages now because prices are going up.
