Nice write up on MSU site.

Looks like MSU is trying to really promote this up coming game. It is the first time they've played in Detroit since 1944 and the first time at Ford Field.

Ticket prices range from $39-$79 for general public and MSU student tickets are $19. That makes the average ticket $45.66. Multiply the average cost by 60,000 seats, means FAU could make roughly $2,740,000 if the game sells out. I suppose that's a good chunk of change. But realistically, I think we'll make half that from this game.

I like this quote from the article.

"FAU, who will be hosting the event, will receive the gate proceeds from the Michigan State matchup to be put toward the funding of the Owls' anticipated state-of-the-art, on-campus stadium. The game was originally scheduled to be the first game at Florida Atlantic's new facility but was moved to Ford Field once the completion date for the project was pushed back to 2011."

They called our new stadium state-of-the-art.  ;D 8)

Very nice write up on the game, I expect we get well over $ 2M for the gate and maybe even clear $ 2M on the day. It will be a great day for the Owls and watch out for a potential upset or at least a close game!

This is a win win for everyone, I would love to hang in this game and give the fans something to see but we won't know if that is possible until we see what happens at UAB.

GO OWLS!

I still believe we had a great chance to beat them last time but the torrential rain turned that game against us.
