With a little effort and a LOT of cash, title game seats can be yours

Want to attend the BCS title game between Florida and Ohio State in Glendale, Ariz.? Good luck. Officially, tickets are not on sale to the general public. Each school gets a certain allotment (if you are a school booster, you might have a chance) and the rest go to corporate sponsors and Fiesta Bowl season ticket holders. But this is America. If you're willing to spend, you might score a ticket.

A quick Internet Google search for "BCS Tickets'' calls up dozens of ticket brokers, such as TicketsNow.com, TicketCity.com and StubHub.com. Ticket packages already are on sale. The tickets likely were sold to the brokers by corporate sponsors who are choosing not to attend the game.

But tickets aren't cheap. A quick glance Monday revealed they are generally in the $1,000 to $4,000 range. If you choose, we did find an available suite - for a cool $148,000.
