Planning a trip to the Rose Bowl

Crimson tide fans are quickly booking flights to Southern California and hotel rooms in Pasadena for the BCS National Championship Game.

Not even cold we weather during finals week dampens Alabama football fans' spirit right now.   Winning the SEC Championship and playing for the National Championship next month in Pasadena, California does that for you.  "A lot of people I know are trying to go down there.  Even if they can't get tickets, they're still going to try to be in Pasadena.  A lot of people are taking road trips.  I've got friends who are taking a train and trying to find the cheapest way to do it," says University of Alabama student Amy St. John.

Tickets aren't cheap.  Neither are costs associated with going there. Phones at travel agencies like Triple A have been ringing off the hook.  Representatives are offering packages including tickets, hotel accommodations and rental cars for the game for under $1,600 dollars.  "It's been awhile since Alabama has competed for a national championship.  So these Alabama fans are ready, excited and they're enthusiastic and looking to get out there," Clay Ingram Triple A Alabama.

Ingram suggests making travel plans now in case tickets and airfare increases as we get closer to the game.

Tickets are already going fast for the tide's date with Texas on Thursday, January 7th.  We have a link to the game's website on the sports page of wsfa.com.
