Baylor football fans will be glued to Weather.com on the 4th of July as the temperature in Waco, Texas will determine the price of season tickets for the 2011-12 season:
“The high temperature in Waco on July 4th, as recorded by the National Weather Service, will be the price point for all season football tickets sold outside of the premium seating sections at Floyd Casey Stadium from July 5-10. The average high temperature in Waco on Independence Day is 95 degrees with a record high of 101 recorded in 1990.
“While season ticket sales have been brisk, we believe this Independence Day promotion will be attractive to many of our fans who have not yet purchased tickets,” said Baylor’s Executive Associate A.D./External Affairs Nick Joos. “Even if Waco were to record a new high for the 4th, fans would be looking at saving nearly 30 percent off the cost of our Super Fan ticket. Of course, if we were to get a break from the hot weather we’ve had the last month, that discount would give fans an even lower price point at which to purchase season tickets.”
As of Friday night, the National Weather Service is projecting a high of 104 on Monday. Here’s to a low pressure system coming through Texas.[H/T Kegs ‘N Eggs]
