TicketCity Bowl 2012: Penn State Interim Coach Tom Bradley Stays Positive

The 2012 TicketCity Bowl, more famously known as the Cotton Bowl, will take place on January 2, 2012 at the Cotton Bowl in Fair Park, Dallas, TX and will pit the Penn St. Nittany Lions against the Houston Cougars.

As recently as Wednesday, plenty of tickets were still available for the bowl game on the TicketCity website, according to SB Nation Houston. In spit of the sluggish ticket sales and muted hype for the game, interim head coach Tom Bradley is optimistic that the Nittany Lions fans will come out in force to support their team.

Alexander Angert of The Patriot-News reports that Bradley is keeping his hopes up about the bowl game in Dallas, despite the turbulent year for the team and the school.

"We're expecting a good reception when we get down there from our alumni. Penn State will show. Penn State alumni will show up. Our fans, we've got a great fan base. I think we'll be OK."

The Houston Cougars are currently favored to win the BCS showdown.
