Both Oklahoma and Iowa have storied College Football programs, and while the 2011 season didn’t exactly pan out as either fan base had hoped, that hasn’t stopped them from purchasing Insight Bowl Tickets for the matchup on December 30. The setting couldn’t be better, as the weather in Arizona during December is as close to perfect as it gets, and the Phoenix/Tempe area is filled with entertaining attractions, as well as tons of bars and restaurants. For those searching for Oklahoma vs. Iowa Tickets, the secondary ticket market has been a popular option, with prices ranging from the $50-$250 (although those prices will probably rise the closer to the game it gets).

Oklahoma Sooners v. Iowa Hawkeyes

Friday, December 30, 2011

Tempe, Arizona @ Sun Devil Stadium

The Oklahoma Sooners started the season with six straight wins, and were in a prime position to make a run at the National Championship game, but a shocking three-point loss to Texas Tech ended those dreams. The Sooners eventually finished with a 9-3 record, dropping games against Baylor and Oklahoma State. Offensively, the team is led by star QB Landry Jones, but Ryan Broyles, his favorite target — and one of the best WRs in college football — injured his knee and missed the last couple of games of the season. He will not be available for the Insight Bowl, and OU fans are hoping Jones and the other receivers can get on the same page by the end of the month. As for the Hawkeyes, they’ve been up and down all year long, at one point losing to lowly Minnesota, and then turing around and beating #15 Michigan. Marcus Coker has been the bell cow in the backfield, raking up 1,384 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns, while Marvin McNutt was the primary receiving weapon, compiling 78 catches, 1,269 yards and 12 receiving touchdowns.

The Insight Bowl has been held annually since 1989. Since 2006 it has featured teams from the Big 12 and Big Ten. It was held in old Arizona Stadium, then moved to Chase Field in downtown Phoenix, and now is played at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, home of the Arizona State Sun Devils. Between 1989-1996 the game was known as the Copper Bowl, with Insight Enterprises owning the naming rights since 1997. This is Iowa’s second consecutive appearance in the Insight Bowl (they beat Missouri in 2010), while Oklahoma will be making their first appearance in the bowl.
