Earlier today, I mentioned that Pitt's ticket sales for the BBVA Compass Bowl weren't going so hot according to Andrea Adelson's ESPN.com report.
Ticket sales, though, are a two-way street and it appears that SMU isn't doing such a great job in that department, either.
If that number is correct, that, again, isn't something that would include third party ticket sales. Still, SMU's side hasn't been selling a ton of tickets, either.
Neither school is particularly close to Birmingham, so that's part of the problem. But if the reports/speculation is correct, the two schools still may have yet to sell 3,000 tickets so far. And that's downright pathetic no matter how you look at it.
