“The MetroPCS Orange Bowl Basketball Classic continues to grow in popularity each and every year and I have no doubt the 2013 doubleheader will be one of the best ever,” said SSE President Michael R. Yormark (@PanthersYormark). “The BB&T Center has proven to be an incredible venue for college hoops and with two great match-ups during the peak holiday season, I’m expecting record crowds and incredible support for these student-athletes.” 

Special ticket packages are available for supporters of the Florida Gators or the Florida State Seminoles starting at $75 and include a ticket to both games, access to either the official Florida or official Florida State tailgate on the County-owned arena’s party City Patios (food and beverage included), and a commemorative gift.
