Mississippi Fans Line Up Early

Some ticket brokers are surprised by the level of interest for the weeknight championship games of the College World Series. Omaha Police know scalpers will be out as well.

One look at the line of Mississippi State fans at the general admission line proves the bulldog fans are as rabid as LSU and Texas fans. The waiting seemed to take a lot out of one fan. Our cameras caught Tegan asleep in her aunt's arms.

"Never seen a game. She's so excited," said Amanda Denny, "We hope Tegan wakes up by game time. We're just rooting for the underdog. They haven't been to a championship."

Addison also was asleep in line. She probably wishes she had a more comfortable spot than cement, but after you've been in line long enough, anything will do.

Some Mississippi State fans passed the time in a useful way, making a sign asking their family to send them more money.

Austin Terry got his tickets for yesterday's game online, but today he decided to wait in the general admission line this time. "I've got $88 left. We'll see how that goes. Hopefully it will work," one fan said.

One person had a sign looking to "buy tickets" but walked away when we pointed the camera his direction.

Most fans don't even consider scalpers anymore. They are comfortable enough on their phones and would rather go online and pay more with the Stub Hubs, Ticket Expresses and Red Zone Tickets of the world.

"My thing with scalping is you never know what you're getting. I'd like to know the ticket is real," said Mississippi State fan Zach Carroll.
