The Oregon and Wisconsin football teams arrived at Los Angeles International Airport Monday for the Rose Bowl game and are scheduled to practice at the Home Depot Center and visit Disneyland today.
Although the game is a contractual sellout, a limited number of tickets remains available for next Monday’s game and can be purchased through Ticketmaster at $150 and $175, their face values.
The tickets were returned to the Tournament of Roses Association from non-participating schools in the Big Ten and Pacific-12 conferences, according to Gina Chappin, the game’s media director.
The Rose Bowl is being played Jan. 2 because of the tournament’s long-standing “never on Sunday” rule. New Year’s Day 2012 falls on a Sunday.
