ORLANDO, Fla. - The University of Central Florida has announced that it's sold 5,000 tickets in advance of the Knights' match up against Baylor University in the Fiesta Bowl on January 1.

Baylor announced Tuesday that it has sold 9,000 tickets to the Bowl Championship Series game.

UCF was required to purchase 17,500 tickets, but at a cost of over $3 million, the school will have to sell at least 13,000 of its allotment to break even.
