Last year's R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl set a new attendance record, due in no small part to the more than 18.000 Cajuns fans who purchased tickets through the UL athletics department.

This year, another record could easily be set.

It was announced today over 20,000 tickets have been sold through the UL ticket office, with ticket sales continuing throughout the weekend. The box office is open 10am-6pm Monday through Friday.

Monday at 6pm is the deadline to buy tickets at the UL ticket office.

The increased ticket sales has led NO Bowl officials to open the Terrace level to the Mercedes Benz Superdome for the first time in bowl history.

The Cajuns and East Carolina will meet Saturday, December 22 at 11:00am.
