NCAA Football: Fiesta Bowl-Boise State vs Arizona Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Wildcats open the 2016 football season with a neutral site game against the BYU Cougars in Glendale at University of Phoenix Stadium. With the game being just two hours away from the University of Arizona, and many more hours than that away from BYU, you would think the Wildcats would be selling more tickets to this game. You would be wrong. Greg Byrne told a Utah radio station "Right now, BYU has sold more tickets that we have". I would be surprised by this, but I also witnessed Boise State outdraw Arizona at the Fiesta Bowl two years ago. This isn't a basketball tournament in Vegas
