BCS ticket holders find seats full

BCS ticket holders find seats full

Posted: Updated:

There's another ticket mess at a football championship game.

Dozens of fans arrived at the Superdome for the BCS title game between No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama to find their seats have been taken over for auxiliary press seating Monday night.

The top two rows of the upper deck are now an overflow area for the media, with one of the rows covered by tables.

Fans are complaining that they paid $300 for those seats but won't be allowed to use them.

The mix-up is similar to the situation that occurred at last year's Super Bowl in Arlington, Texas, where some temporary seating had not been inspected and couldn't be used.

Some angry fans had to watch the game on televisions in a lounge at Cowboys Stadium.
