Orange Bowl 2012: West Virginia Sells 2,000 Tickets On First Day Of Availability

The West Virginia Mountaineers have just started selling tickets for the 2012 Orange Bowl against the Clemson Tigers, even thought the tickets were mostly only available to season ticket holders and only a select number were available to the general public; according to Mike Casazza of the Charleston Daily Mail.

"I would say right now it's probably in the middle of the reaction to the Sugar Bowl and the reaction to the Fiesta Bowl, which would make sense," Wells said. "It's not quite as easy to get to as Atlanta was, but it's easier to get to than Phoenix was."

Wells said in addition to the season-ticket holders, who received order forms last month, the public was allowed to purchase from one of the seven types of tickets WVU sells.

The University expects tickets sales to experience a significant jump on Wednesday when the rest of the tickets will be available to the general public.
