Tampa Bay Bucs Poised To Sell Out Steelers Matchup

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune reports that the Tampa Bay Bucs could sell out their stadium with the Steelers in town this week:

Tampa Bay’s 20-7 road win over the Carolina Panthers, that elevated the 2-0 Buccaneers into first place in the NFC South, may have sealed the deal.

The likelihood that the home fans will want to be there to see if this young team can make an improbable 3-0 start, has grown immensely.

Cornerback Ronde Barber made his pitch for fans to buy out the remaining tickets of a game that was going to be close to a sellout anyway, given the following the Steelers have, anywhere they play.

This is significant because last week the Bucs didn't even sell out their season opener, which was blacked out in the Tampa area as a result. This time, they have two 2-0 teams.
