International Bowl Tickets for Sale
This year's International Bowl will be between the University of South Florida Bulls and the Northern Illinois Huskies. The Bulls finished the season 7-5, but struggled in Big East division play, going just 3-4. This sank them to sixth in the league standings. Still, this is a dangerous team. The team relies on its running game, which covers an average of 169.4 yards a game. Quarterback B.J. Daniels is both the leading passer and rusher. He is the key to everything the Bulls do. He ran the ball almost as often as he passed the ball this season.
The Northern Illinois Huskies stayed competitive all season long, but dropped their last two games. The team managed to finish second in the West Division of the Mid-America Conference with a 7-5 record and 5-3 record in conference. The team is definitely a running team with quarterback Chandler Harnish throwing for around 150 yards a game and the running game picking up nearly 200 yards a game. Chad Spann splits time in the backfield with Me'co Brown. Spann scored an incredible 19 touchdowns despite only running for 938 yards. He is the most dangerous man on the field averaging 5.9 yards a carry.

The International Bowl is a rather new addition to the college football bowl season. The inaugural game took place on January 6, 2007 and remained true to its name, being the only bowl game to take place in Canada. The city of Toronto hosts the event at the Rogers Centre and has seen the attendance steadily rise from 26,717 people with tickets in the first game to over 40,000 in the last game.
Toronto is no stranger to football. It is home to the Toronto Argonauts, a Canadian Football League franchise. This game gives fans a chance to see new potential players in the league. The International Bowl is the long-awaited sports addition for the city. Following a loss in tourism revenue the city requested a bowl game in 2003. This request was denied, but two years later the request was approved.
The bowl organizers recognized the importance of conference affiliations so now is the game in which a top seed from the Big East and the Mid-American Conference are sent to play north of the border.
