A line was building up at 8:30 p.m. Monday with folks waiting to buy their tickets for the Bum Phillips Bowl between Nederland and Port Neches-Groves this Friday.

Fans and proud parents fought mosquitos and fatigue to hold their place in line throughout the night, some in tents and some in in lawn chairs bundled up in blankets.

Tickets went on sale at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday. Cost is $5 for adults and $3 for students with a limit of four adult tickets per family and two student tickets per student.
