Seating Priority
Final press box seating priority for each school's media contingent will be coordinated through each school's Sports Information Department. The Bowl's Media Operations staff will establish the seating priority for local and regional media not specifically assigned to either school.

Credentials are issued based on the applicant's primary reporting function. Please send all primary credential requests by December 17.

Photographers and camera persons will be issued a Field Level credential. This credential will also allow access to the interview rooms following the game's conclusion. Full hospitality, game stats and updates will be provided for all Field Level credential holders at the Hospitality Area located at field level on the northeast side. Field Level holders needing press box access will be dealt with on a case by case basis.

Newspaper, radio and television reporters and internet reporters will be issued a Press Box credential. This credential allows individual access to the Press Box and Field Level (after the 5 minute mark of the 4th Quarter) and the post-game news conference. Hospitality for Press Box credential holders will be in the Press Box only.

No credentials will be mailed. We will require an official photo ID (driver's license, media ID, etc.) before any credentials will be issued. Also, the same photo ID will be required, along with the appropriate credential, in order to gain access into LP Field before or during game day. Remember that all carry-in bags will be subject to search at the Field.
