Fewer than 5,000 tickets are left for the Illini’s Rose Bowl Game against University of Southern California on January 1, according to a release. So far, the University of Illinois Athletic Ticket Office has received 20,000 ticket requests.

The ticket office had 12,000 ticket requests on Monday, the first day tickets became available, and an average of 2,000 ticket requests every day since.

This week, only I-Fund members and season ticket holders could buy Rose Bowl tickets. But starting Tuesday, December 11, all remaining tickets will go on sale to the public.
