True, but any bowl game wants to get teams that will buy tickets beyond their allotments to ensure a sellout and to get as many fans as possible from the teams in question to fill local hotels, bars, restaurants, and cabs. Not speaking of any teams in particular, but a team that sells its allotment plus thousands of extra seats is more valuable than one that will only sell the allotment alone.
