Sun Bowl fan tour

by the University of Minnesota Alumni Association

From eNews, December 18, 2003

The University of Minnesota Alumni Association is sponsoring the Official Bowl Tour for fans who want to spend New Year's Eve cheering for the Gopher football team at the Wells Fargo Sun Bowl in El Paso, Texas. The tour package includes airfare, lodging, and Gopher fan events. To learn more about it or for information about bus tour and airfare-only options, see Gopher fans planning to goto the Sun Bowl are strongly encouraged to buy tickets through the Gopher Athletics Ticket Office instead of through the Sun Bowl organizers or Ticketmaster. Purchasing a ticket through the U will generate more revenue for the Gopher athletics department, and it will also ensure that you get a seat in the Gopher fan section. This will be the U's fourth appearance in a bowl game in the past five seasons, marking the first time in school history that a Gopher team has accomplished this feat. The Gopher football team finished the regular season 9-3 overall. It will play against the Oregon Ducks (8-4) at the Sun Bowl. For more information about tickets or to buy your ticket, see or call the Athletics Ticket Office at 612-624-8080 or 1-800-U-GOPHER.
