SOUTH BEND — With the fastest sellout in Sun Bowl history (21 hours) in the books, the mega-in-demand Notre Dame-Miami football tussle has moved to the dreaded secondary ticket market.
Now, what originally cost $15-$60 per ticket to witness on Dec. 31 in El Paso, Texas, will gouge your checking account anywhere from $85 to $413 on stubhub.com.
For those with less-ambitious budgets, you can purchase a souvenir Catholics vs. Convicts T-shirt on eBay for $20 plus shipping and handling from an outfit called Sportscrack Tees.
As for Notre Dame head football coach Brian Kelly, he’s busy selling, too. The product? His vision of ND’s football future.
The current Irish three-game win streak has proven to be a marvelous deodorant in that respect.
"They can see the momentum you’ve been talking about coming to fruition," Kelly said of the prospects on ND’s holiday shopping list. "We’re probably getting (fewer questions) about our program. I think they see we’re moving in the right direction."
