Carrier Classic, Florida Vs. Georgetown: Tickets Could Be Packaged With Jaguars Tickets

Tickets for the 2012 Carrier Classic between the Florida Gators and George Hoyas, scheduled to be played on Nov. 9 off the coast of Jacksonville, Fla., will include in a package deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars' Nov. 8 Thursday night divisional matchup with the Indianapolis Colts.

Jacksonville Sports and Entertainment executive director Alan Verlander said pricing would be made available later this week.

"We are working on it," Verlander said. "There is a way to sell tickets, per se, but NAS Mayport can't sell tickets on base. So we're working on a package deal right now involving the Jaguars."

Seating capacity on the deck of the aircraft carrier is expected to be around 8,000, with about 3,000 seats for military members, veterans and their families.
