Nov. 23, 2006
HOUSTON - While the Thanksgiving weekend is just beginning, it will be business as usual for representatives of the University of Houston Ticket Office on Friday in anticipation of the 2006 C-USA Championship Game presented by Aéropostale
The Ticket Office will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday for fans looking to purchase or pick up their tickets for the 2006 C-USA Championship Game presented by Aéropostale. Fans are encouraged to pick up their tickets early to avoid long lines at the will call windows on game day.
Ticket sales have been brisk, but good seats remain as the Cougars make their first appearance in the C-USA title game. Premium seating tickets are available for $50, while sideline and lower end zone reserved seating tickets will be sold for $30. Upper end zone general admission seating tickets are available for $20.
Both Houston and visiting team student tickets can be purchased for only $10 with a valid ID. Students at any Conference USA school who plan to attend the C-USA Championship Game presented by Aéropostale must purchase their tickets in person at the UH Ticket Office or at the ticket office of the East Division champion when it is decided.
On-line ticket sales always are available 24 hours a day at UHCougars.com.
Cougar Basketball fans also will have a chance to purchase or pick up tickets to the C-USA Championship Game presented by Aéropostale at two more games. Representatives from the UH Ticket Office will be selling football tickets at the women's basketball game against Michigan State on Sunday and at the men's game on Nov. 29 against Prairie View A&M.
A table will be set up inside the Holman Street entrance where fans can pick up their orders or buy general admission, reserved, or premium seats.
The C-USA Championship Game presented by Aéropostale can be heard live on 790 AM The Sports Animal with the pregame show beginning one hour before kickoff. Tom Franklin will handle the play-by-play duties, while former record-setting UH quarterback David Klingler will provide color analysis. Former All-Southwest Conference center Chuck Brown serves as the sideline reporter.
All Cougar Football games can be heard live on the Internet by logging onto UHCougars.com.
In addition, the game will be aired live on ESPN2 in the Cougars' seventh appearance on television during the 2006 season.
UH must wait until the regular season wraps up this weekend before they find out who they will meet in the title game, though. The C-USA East Division title remains up in the air between East Carolina (6-5, 5-3, C-USA East) and Southern Miss (7-4, 5-2 C-USA East).
The Golden Eagles play host to Marshall at 6:30 p.m., Saturday in Hattiesburg, Miss. If USM beats the Thundering Herd, USM will advance to the C-USA Championship game to face the Cougars. If Marshall knocks off Southern Miss, the Golden Eagles and East Carolina will tie for the East Division championship, but ECU will advance since it defeated USM 20-17 in overtime on Oct. 28.
ECU has finished its C-USA schedule but meets North Carolina State in Raleigh, N.C., at 6 p.m., Saturday in the Pirates' regular season finale.
