At the turnstile

I-Bowl officials are expecting an announced crowd of more than 44,000 for the Dec. 30game between Alabama and Colorado at Independence Stadium.

Colorado officials said yesterday they had sold more than 1,300 tickets to the game. If you add in tickets for families and traveling party, then you're looking at 2,500 or so.

That's not bad considering the distance between Boulder and here.

Alabama has sold 9,100 tickets. Not bad considering a four-game losing streak coming into the game.

Locally, there is some appeal with Nick Saban coaching Alabama and a Colorado team we haven't seen here in the past.
