 TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- The Arizona Wildcats have sold out their 11,000 ticket allotment for the Holiday Bowl.

Wildcat Club members and season-ticket holders purchased all the available tickets during their exclusive two-day window.

Arizona fans can still buy tickets to the game though the Holiday Bowl's official Web site, http://www.holidaybowl.com .

Tuesday's announcement came hours after Nebraska, the Wildcats' opponent in the Dec. 30 game at San Diego, said it had sold all of its 11,000 ticket allotment, too.

The contest will pit the No. 20 Cornhuskers (9-4) against the No. 22 Wildcats (8-4) in a rematch of the 1998 game.

The Holiday Bowl will be televised on ESPN.
