Georgia Southern Bowl Ticket Requests Now Being Taken

Eagles bowl eligible for the second time in program history

STATESBORO – Ticket requests for Georgia Southern's 2018 bowl game are now available for submission on GSEagles.com/Bowl. Fans can request tickets for all the potential bowl destinations to watch the Eagles play in their second bowl game in program history.



For those who pre-order tickets, credit cards will be automatically charged on Monday, Dec. 3 for the payment of ordered tickets. Order requests will be filled only for the game in which GS participates. All tickets will be allocated and assigned via priority points calculated as of 8 a.m. on Dec. 6.

For each bowl ticket purchased through the Georgia Southern University Ticket Office, 1.5 priority points will be applied to the patron's account with the Athletic Foundation. To maximize your priority points, please request bowl tickets and make any planned or additional donations by 8 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 6.

The deadline for priority seat allocation for the 2018 bowl game is Wednesday, Dec. 5 at 11:59 p.m. (ET). Following the deadline, all tickets purchased through the ticket office will be allocated in the order in which they are received.

Once accepting an invitation to a bowl game, a university is contractually bound to purchase a set amount of tickets to that game and must pay for unsold tickets. Tickets purchased through Georgia Southern directly benefit the athletics department and the student-athletes we serve, and they allow us to be better positioned for future bowls. We appreciate your consideration as you make your bowl ticket purchase.

After the pre-orders are completed and the bowl game is announced, any remaining tickets will go on sale to Georgia Southern's announced bowl on Monday, Dec. 3 at 8:30 a.m.

Georgia Southern's bowl destination and its opponent are scheduled to be announced on Sunday, Dec. 2, a day after the Sun Belt Championship Game. The Eagles likely will play in one of the five bowls with Sun Belt Conference tie-ins:

December 15, 2018

2:30 p.m. — AutoNation Cure Bowl (Orlando, Fla.) vs. American Conference
5:30 p.m. — Raycom Media Camellia Bowl (Montgomery, Ala.) vs. Mid-American Conference
9 p.m. — R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl (New Orleans, La.) vs. Conference USA

December 22, 2018
7 p.m. — Dollar General Bowl (Mobile, Ala.) vs. Mid-American Conference

December 29, 2018
1:15 p.m. — NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl (Tuscon, Ariz.) vs. Mountain West Conference

All times listed are Eastern.

The Sun Belt has contractual ties with five postseason bowl games. Five SBC teams are bowl eligible (Appalachian State, Arkansas State, Georgia Southern, Troy and ULM). Coastal Carolina (vs. GS, at USA) and ULM (at A-State, vs. ULM) could also become bowl eligible with one more win.

If there are more eligible teams from the conference than slots, being bowl eligible does not guarantee a postseason bid. There are 39 bowls, meaning 78 slots nationally. If there are not 78 bowl eligible teams (there are 68 this week), an SBC could fill an open spot, but if all slots are filled, some team(s) will get left out. Purchase tickets through GS to make us a strong candidate for a bowl!

"We are excited to be bowl eligible and know that Eagle Nation will support us wherever we are selected to play," Georgia Southern Director of Athletics Tom Kleinlein said. "Bowls aren't easy to get to and this will be a celebration of a great year. Congratulations go out to Coach Lunsford, his staff and student-athletes on this deserved reward and I know they're as excited as our fans are. Georgia Southern has a passionate fan base and I know they will show up in droves for our game. I encourage all fans to place your requests now for your tickets now and make plans to join us for another exciting bowl experience. We really need our fans to step up and show bowls that we would be an attractive selection for their game."

Georgia Southern University's Alumni Association, Athletic Foundation and College of Business will be hosting another True Blue Tailgate at the final bowl game destination. Tickets are on sale now and must be purchased in advance. Depending on the bowl location, prices may increase once the bowl game is announced. Youth tickets are available for children ages 4 through 12 and children ages 3 and under are free.

Travel packages, if available, will be released once a formal bowl announcement has been made.

If you know you cannot attend the bowl, you can continue to support the football program while helping other charitable organizations by purchasing and donating tickets through our Wings program. Because of Eagle Nation, Wings has donated over 2,000 tickets to veterans, underserved youth and charitable organizations since starting the program in fall 2015. Donating tickets to the bowl game will be available once the bowl game has been announced and is an available option at checkout.

The Eagles became bowl eligible with their 48-31 win over New Mexico State. Georgia Southern last played in a bowl game in 2015, rolling past Bowling Green 58-27 in the GoDaddy Bowl, which is now the Dollar General Bowl.
