On a semi-related note, it will be interesting to see how the Ram-Crusader Cup does at Yankee Stadium the week before Rivalry 152. I suspect it will also do well – on the other hand, tickets are still available for that game, so I don’t know for sure.
From CrossSports, it looks like HC and Fordham had 15K tickets to sell. CS claims that Fordham easily made their 15K number (not too surprising since Rams are selling out 10K home games more or less routinely), but HC has had problems selling their tickets. Not sure what reality is there.
