UK Officials Issue Warning About Counterfeit Football Tickets

A seat at Saturday's game against Florida is now officially the hottest ticket in town, but UK officials are warning fans to be on the lookout after dozens of counterfeit tickets turned up at last weekend's game.

Officials say they confiscated about 50 counterfeit tickets before the LSU game and there are concerns that the same thing could happen with tickets to the Florida game.

The game against the Gators is already a sell-out. Some students waited in line for hours on Monday morning to get their hands on seats in the student section.

UK officials say the only way to make sure your tickets are the real deal is to buy them through Ticketmaster or directly from the UK Athletics Department.

UK officials are also telling students to make sure they have their student ID on hand if they plan to use discounted student tickets. They say without an ID, those tickets will not be honored.
