WACO _ For the Baylor fans wishing to save some money while attending the team's last two home football games, the school has put together a special package to make that happen.
Adults ages 19 years and older can purchase a ticket to Saturday's game against Texas A&M and the Nov. 20 contest against Oklahoma for a total price of $80. For those under 19 years old, a ticket to those same two games will cost a total of $50.
Overall, that's a savings of $30 off the single-game price.
Those discounted tickets can be purchased only at baylorbears.com starting at 9 a.m. Wednesday and finishing at 12-noon Thursday.
"Baylor fans have been tremendous this season rising up to 'Fill the Stands' for the first four home games,'' Baylor athletic director Ian McCaw said. "With the inspiring support of BU fans, the Bears have responded with wins in each game at Floyd Casey Stadium on their way to becoming bowl bound for the first time since 1994.
"This special offer affords the Waco community and Baylor alumni an opportunity to be a part of the two remaining home games at a reduced price while tickets remain available. We encourage fans to arrive early, wear gold and cheer loud as the Bears continue to build on their historic season.''
Baylor is 4-0 at home this season and have drawn 159,136 fans to those games. If the Bears draw a little over 82,000 fans to the final two home games against A&M and OU, they will break the Floyd Casey Stadium six-game single-game total attendance record of 240,367 set in 1991.
On the field, the Bears are 7-3 overall, 4-2 in the Big 12 and are already guaranteed of playing in their first bowl game since 1994.
