Toast of the Town: Glendale toasted the Connecticut Huskies. The school paid handsomely for the gesture. The University of Connecticut lost $1.8 million playing in the Fiesta Bowl, spending $4.3 million and receiving just $2.5 million from the Big East. The school spent $2.9 million on tickets alone, reselling just 2,771 out of the 17,500 they bought. Could anyone have the heart to deny college football players a once-in-a-lifetime experience? For that price? Certainly. San Diego State, exceeding its ticket allotment and not traveling, made $11,000. [The Daily Campus]
