The tickets, which went on sale at 8:30 a.m. and were all gone by 10:45, were split into ""Red"" and ""White"" half-season packages.
According to students the ticket office's servers handled the crowds looking for tickets much better than they did when students went online to buy football tickets in June. Many students complained about the long wait to buy student football tickets after the site's servers were overwhelmed.
Sophomore Kyle McDaniel bought tickets Tuesday and said the process was quick and relatively easy. After logging on to UWBadgers.com a few minutes before tickets went on sale, he said it took five minutes for him to buy his ""Red"" ticket package.
""My ticket-buying experience today was pretty good,"" McDaniel said. ""I would not say the same for when I bought football tickets.""
Representatives from the UW Athletic Department said they had not heard about any issues with students overcrowding the system's servers. McDaniel guessed that the ticket office must have been better prepared for the people logging on to buy tickets this year.
""The system didn't seem to be hit so hard,"" he said. ""So either they changed the way their servers were working or there were less people trying.""
