There was another ticket mix-up at a championship football game.
The Sugar Bowl has discovered it violated tax laws when it purchased three $1,000 tickets to dinners honoring former Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco.
The Sugar Bowl made several campaign donations to then-Gov. Kathleen Blanco of Louisiana in the mid-2000s, in violation of federal tax law, according to a group that filed a complaint about the donations with the IRS.
The Sugar Bowl acknowledged it made several campaign donations to then-Gov. Kathleen Blanco of Louisiana in the mid-2000s _ in violation of federal tax law _ and a group has filed a complaint about the matter with the IRS.
Sugar Bowl spokesman John Sudsbury wasn't quite as effusive, but said the bowl committee would "look very close at them" if Notre Dame is eligible.
"Sometimes we like a team that is making a new name for itself or hasn't been in our bowl before," Sudsbury said. "It can help them. It's definitely a factor that we look at. But I'm not saying that would give them weight over somebody that doesn't have the same history."
