Wisconsin proposes $3 hike for football tickets

MADISON (AP) -- Wisconsin football fans might have to pay $3 more next year to attend games at Camp Randall Stadium.

Athletics Director Barry Alvarez says season ticket holders will pay $21 more per seat for 7 home games next year if his proposal is approved Friday by the athletic board.

In a letter to fans Tuesday, Alvarez says it would be the first ticket increase since 2007 and help pay for rising costs for travel, scholarships, facilities and other expenses. Each ticket would cost $42.

The plan would not increase ticket prices for men's basketball or men's hockey.
