Description

The Allstate Sugar Bowl pressured the University of Hawai'i to give up 4,000 tickets. Hawai'i fans have been trying since UH's victory over the University of Washington on Saturday night to get hotel and airline reservations for the game in the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans — and Sugar Bowl tickets. UH officials underestimated demand for tickets to the Jan. 1 game and gave 4,000 seats from the school's allotment of 17,500 to Hawai'i's opponent, the University of Georgia. UH athletic director Herman Frazier said yesterday he wanted to wait until this Friday or even Saturday to see how sales went before giving back 4,000 tickets. But bowl officials on Saturday wanted an answer "immediately," Frazier said. Gov. Linda Lingle has her Allstate Sugar Bowl ticket, from UH's allotment of 13,500 tickets. Who receives some of UH's 3,000 Sugar Bowl tickets earmarked specifically for university use is supposed to be decided by three UH entities: the athletic department; Koa Anuenue, the UH athletic booster club; and the UH Foundation, the university's fundraising arm.
