Michigan has sold nearly 10,000 tickets for Outback Bowl

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

So far, the University of Michigan has sold nearly 10,000 tickets for the Outback Bowl, where the Wolverines will take on the South Carolina Gamecocks.

Though the Michigan Wolverines aren't playing in a BCS bowl game, the university is having no problem selling its allotment of tickets for the Outback Bowl, where the Wolverines will take on the South Carolina Gamecocks on New Year's Day.

To date, Michigan has sold over 9,000 tickets for the game, and is closing in on 10,000 tickets sold.

Michigan's in-state rivals, Michigan State, hasn't had as much good fortune selling its allotment of tickets for its bowl game. The Spartans have only sold roughly 2,000 tickets for the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, where the Spartans will take on the TCU Horned Frogs.

The Outback Bowl isn't the most prestigious non-BCS bowl game, but it's still typically one of the better non-BCS bowls. Held at Raymond James Stadium, home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Outback Bowl gets the third pick of teams from the SEC and Big Ten.

Last year, Michigan State beat Georgia 33-30, in a triple overtime thriller.

Michigan last appeared in the Outback Bowl in 2003, when the Wolverines defeated the Florida Gators, 38-30.
