Crunching the numbers

On the day LSU announced record season-ticket sales for football at 67,800, the University of Texas announced its record season-ticket sales for football at 72,000.

A closer look at the numbers shows Texas selling more season tickets than LSU, but Austin's Memorial Stadium seating roughly 6,000 less fans than LSU's Tiger Stadium.

So Texas has fewer seats than LSU, but sells more season tickets.

What does it mean? It means it's tougher for a student to get a ticket at UT. It's especially tough when you consider the size of the University of Texas. It's also tougher for an opponent to get a ticket to a UT game. And it's tougher for Joe Fan to get a ticket.
