LOS ANGELES -- Several UCLA athletic department donors are getting into the holiday spirit, or, perhaps more accurately the Holiday Bowl spirit.
Thanks to donations to the Wooden Athletic Fund, the first 650 student tickets for UCLA’s Holiday Bowl game against Baylor will be $25 -- a steep discount from $65 face value. The donors have requested to remain anonymous.
"It is wonderful that several of our donors have generously come forward to ensure our students have the opportunity to attend the Holiday Bowl,” athletic director Dan Guerrero said in a statement. “Many of them are alumni who fondly remember attending bowl games when they were students, and want to ensure our current students can enjoy that same experience at an affordable price.”
UCLA plays Baylor in the Holiday Bowl on Dec. 27 at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego. To receive the discount, students must purchase the tickets through UCLA. Complete ticket information is available here.
