Looking for a Rose Bowl ticket? If you're not a season ticket-holder or donor at the University of Wisconsin, you're on your own.

The Badgers have sold out their entire, unspecified allotment for the Jan. 1 matchup with TCU through a reserve sale to those groups. Those who have applied will receive an e-mail regarding the status of their request no later than Monday.

A sale for student season-ticket holders got under way Sunday at 9 p.m. and will continue until Monday at 4:30 p.m. or whenever supplies are depleted. There is a limit of two tickets per order.

The face value of Rose Bowl tickets is $145. A large supply of tickets were available on Stubhub.com on Sunday evening, with prices ranging from $244 for seats behind either end zone to $1,850 for premium seats near the 50-yard line.

The Big Ten Conference was allotted 27,000 tickets last year, of which 25,000 were made available to Ohio State, which did not sell them out.

The Pac-10 was allotted 37,000, of which 32,000 went to Oregon, which did sell out its allotment.

The distribution is uncertain this year.

Despite those inflated figures on Stubhub.com, there's a lot of skepticism about whether this game will prove to be a tough ticket.

The Pac-10 won't be represented and although there is certain to be a rabid TCU fan base, that won't necessarily translate to high demand given that TCU's entire living alumni base can fit inside Camp Randall Stadium, as colleague Rob Hernandez detailed recently.
