Orange Bowl ticket/travel package information

By DAILY CHRONICLE STAFF - sports@daily-chronicle.com

Northern Illinois has announced it will offer free Orange Bowl tickets to students who can make it to Miami for the bowl game on Jan. 1 against Florida State.

Students can reserve their free ticket – NIU is only allowing one per student – at the Convocation Center ticket office starting today. Students will need proper identification.

NIU has offered free tickets to students before, but never for a game of this magnitude. The Huskies finished the season 12-1 and champions of the Mid-American Conference.

Tickets for non-students range from $75-$225 if you're purchasing them from NIU's allotment. You can purchase them through niuhuskies.com or can call the Convocation Center at 815-752-6800 during regular business hours.

NIU is offering Orange Bowl travel packages, ranging from $769-$2,049 and available by clicking here.

Tickets are also available on Ticketmaster and Stubhub.
