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.
