EVANSTON, Ill. (CBS) — Fans are reacting to Northwestern’s victory in the Gator Bowl by buying tickets and souvenirs – lots of them.
Northwestern waited 64 years for a bowl victory. The 34-20 win Tuesday in the Gator Bowl over Mississippi State was historic, and Deputy Athletic Director Mike Polisky says ticket sales for next season are, too.
“It’s been a tremendous, tremendous 24 hour period of time,” he said. “In fact, it’s probably the most historical selling period in the history of our football program.”
