How much is round trip to TTU's bowl game compared to others?

By James Clark - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - According to a national travel website, Texas Tech and Northwestern fans will spend less than the national average to see their favorite teams play a bowl game.  Tech and Northwestern are in the TicketCity Bowl in Dallas on January 1st. 

Priceline.com says fans might expect to spend $523 per person while the average for the top 23 bowl games is $583.  That's a difference of $60.  However, we must point out that Priceline based its estimate on the idea of a Northwestern fan flying in from Chicago instead of a Red Raider fan driving in from Lubbock. 

So, which fans are paying the most to travel to a bowl game?  Priceline says that would be the Orange Bowl at $904 per person round trip.
